A sampling of calls handled by Reading Police Department in recent days.

Man Summonsed After New Year's Eve Crash
The following information was compiled based on reports from the Reading Police Department. An arrest does not indicate a conviction.


On Tuesday, Dec. 31, at 11:06 p.m., police were called to Haverhill Street for a report of a motor vehicle crash with the car abandoned.

Following the incident, police located a 49-year-old North Reading, placed him into custody and brought him back to the Reading Police Department.

The man was summonsed for marked lanes violation, and leaving the scene after property damage. The man was not charged with operating under the influence as was initially reported in the police log.
