A driver was injured Wednesday after a reported crash with an off-road vehicle in Fall River.

According to Sergeant Moses Pereira, just after 10:00 p.m., a group of off-road vehicles were observed travelling the wrong direction on Plymouth Avenue. Sgt. Matthew Mendes observed this activity and activated his blue lights and positioned his vehicle in the center of the roadway to warn the vehicles behind him of the safety issue ahead.

As a result of Sgt. Mendes’ actions, the off-road vehicles began to disperse into nearby parking lots. One of the off-road vehicles, a dirt bike, struck a Kia sedan at the intersection of Plymouth Avenue and Rodman Street. The dirt bike operator then fled the area on foot to evade police.

The operator of the Kia was transported to St. Anne’s Hospital with minor injuries.

A witness stated that there was a group of approximately 15 dirt bikes and 4-wheelers on the road just before the crash.

    I was almost hit at the exact same location by one of these morons. The cops chased him and he just turned around and went the other way. Impound all their bikes , scrap them and put them all in jail.

    The police won’t respond to any calls. The bikes congregate on Pleasant Street all the time. I’ve seen police cars pass all of the bikes sitting in front of the garage where they start.

    They use Pleasant Street as a racetrack to go through Lafayette Park and down Eastern Ave the wrong way.

    Maybe FRPD should stop and confront them when all the bikes are parked instead of rushing to Pizza Time for a change.

    Packs of hoodrats on large dirt-bikes (with no lights) blasting down Plymouth Ave into oncoming traffic … AT NIGHT.
    Thats some third world level sh** !
    Coogan needs to get control of this; but he is weak and ineffective. Coogan should go back to being a home room monitor. Fall River needs a real executive in charge, but it will never attract any talent.
