A Hubway station in Boston was knocked out of commission early Saturday when a man driving a Cadillac ran into it, crushing several bicycles and damaging multiple docks, according to Hubway and Boston police.
“The Boylston St. at Berkeley St. station is temporarily out of service due to damages sustained from an incident involving a vehicle,’’ Hubway posted on its Twitter account Monday. The company said the equipment will be removed Monday and replaced by week’s end.
According to police, officers responded to the intersection around 3:59 a.m. Saturday where they found a black Cadillac “in the middle of the Hubway Station with multiple damaged bicycles surrounding it.’’
The vehicle was unoccupied.
Police ran the license plate, and identified its registered owner, who is a Quincy resident.
But minutes later and about one block away, officers spotted a man bleeding from a facial laceration and identified him as the registered owner of the Cadillac.
Elias Nebiyu Elias, 32, was charged with leaving the scene of an accident with property damage. He was taken to a hospital for treatment of the laceration, police email@example.com. Follow him on Twitter @JREbosglobe.
