Trains being stopped at JFK/UMass as police look for a carjacker who crashed nearby
A South End carjacking that ended with a crash near the JFK/UMass T stop had police searching Red Line trains for the suspect this morning.
After being spotted by a detail cop on Waltham Street carjacking a green Lexus SUV around 8 a.m., the suspect drove away, leading responding police units on a chase that went down the Expressway and ended with a crash near Buttonwood Court in Dorchester. The man then ran away and police officers and a canine unit are currently on the hunt for him.
8:58 a.m. update: They are restarting the trains.
