Driver crashes 16 cars, hurts 5

POLICE said yesterday that they have detained a driver accused of hitting 16 vehicles and injuring five people in the Pudong New Area on Saturday night.

The driver is believed to have taken drugs, police said. The injured mainly had broken bones and they were in stable condition.

The driver, in a black car, drove into a residential area about 10pm on Pudong's Lingyan Road S., where he hit barriers and struck several cars and mopeds inside the community, injuring several people in the area.

A security guard surnamed Lu said the driver "acted like he was crazy."

Police were called and chased the driver, who drove to a nearby market and crashed into vehicles and people there. He was finally nabbed by police and security guards. His identity was not released.

In another hit-and-run crash in Pudong on Saturday, a woman was hit and killed crossing a road. The driver of a van who fled turned himself in yesterday, police said. The middle-aged woman was pronounced dead at a hospital. No further details were given.
