Driver crashed through auto shop, tried to flee, police say

The driver left a trail of leaking car fluid to his location.

WAREHAM, Mass. (AP) — Police in Massachusetts have apprehended a driver who they say crashed through the wall of an auto detailing business at a Wareham home.

Wareham Fire Department Assistant Chief John Kelley says firefighters received the call on Sunday morning reporting a car crashed into a building. WCVB-TV reports responding authorities found the driver had already taken off before they arrived, but left a trail of leaking car fluid to his location.

Kelley says the suspect was found about a quarter-mile away from the scene.

Home and business owner Bill McCain says his garage suffered severe structural damage and damaged two cars in the garage. There were no injuries.
