Witnesses stopped a man in a sports car from fleeing after he crashed into a tree and then into a parked car in Belmont Friday night, according to the Belmont Police Department.
A 35-year-old San Mateo man was driving a Dodge Charger around 9:35 p.m. near the 500 block of Ralston Avenue when he crashed into a redwood tree in the center median, according to police.
He then continued driving east and hit a parked car on the side of the road, according to police.
He tried to flee on foot but was stopped by witnesses who held him until police arrived. The man was taken to the hospital for serious, non life-threatening injuries. The accident is still under investigation but alcohol may have been involved, according to police.
