Don’t Run Into Police Cruisers Without Being Licensed
Last night around 10:56pm, officers from District C-11 (Dorchester) were on patrol in an unmarked car stopped at the red light at the intersection of Columbia Rd. and Geneva Avenue. As the light turn green and the officers started proceeding forward, they were rear ended by a vehicle.
Officers stopped their vehicle and pulled over to exchange information with the operator of the other vehicle. The operator of the other vehicle told officers that her foot had slipped off the pedal causing her to hit the cruiser. The operator of the vehicle told officers that the car belonged to a friend, and that she did not have a license on her but that she was licensed to operate a motor vehicle in Massachusetts. The operator provided her personal information to officers, but query via the MDT (computer in cruiser) revealed that there was no license in the system for the name and date of birth given. The operator then gave officers her real information and told officers her license was expired. Check of the operator’s true information revealed that she was not licensed to operate a motor vehicle and that there was an outstanding warrant for the operator for Operating Without Being Licensed and Speeding.
The operator, Aja N. Hill, 30, of Dorchester was arrested and charged with Operating Without Being Licensed and the outstanding warrant.
