Manchester Police/Fire: Police probe street rage incident

Manchester Police/Fire

MANCHESTER — A Manchester resident reported a confrontation with a motorist to police Monday, shortly after 11 a.m.

The resident told officers that he was in a crosswalk near Beach Street and Summer Street, and he waved the driver on to pass by. The driver, however, then drove past, nearly hitting the pedestrian and hurling expletives at him.

Police said they have the driver’s license plate information and are looking into the incident.

At 5:21 p.m. on Friday, a Hickory Hill Road resident walked into the police station because he had locked himself out of his house. The fire department was notified and assisted.

Early Saturday morning, at 3:31, an elderly male Washington Street resident was transported to Beverly Hospital with a high fever and nausea.

On Sunday, at 9:15 a.m. a policeman on patrol said the railroad gates were removed near the railroad crossing on Beach Street. Police notified the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, which responded to address the issue.

On Monday morning, at 10:30, an elderly male Friend Street resident was transported by the Fire Department’s Ambulance Squad to Beverly Hospital after calling 911.
