Police logs: Hit & Run investigations underway

Last Thursday’s blustery winds caused a bit of chaos. There were downed trees, poles, etc. And I’m guessing the winds contributed to a train service shut down in the wee hours of the morning, plus some of the accidents and false alarms police responded to.

Police are currently investigating two Hit & Runs in town from that day. Fortunately, neither resulted in reported injuries.

It was a bad week for deer in Southborough. Three were reported struck within three days. (So drive carefully out there.)

Read about those incidents and more in the latest logs from the Southborough Police Department.
