Police: Woman jumps on hood after crash

PEABODY — Police say a motorist was arrested after she crashed into a fence at a trailer park on Route 1 on Monday and then drove away with a woman clinging to her hood.

Katie E. Burke, 31, of 286 Newbury St., Apt. 114, Peabody, was arrested on charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license, leaving the scene of a property damage accident and negligent operation of a motor vehicle.

The incident began shortly after 6 p.m., when a vehicle with two adults and two children inside struck a fence at the Mobile Estates park at 286 Newbury St., according to the incident log.

“Vehicle was attempting to leave the scene,” police wrote. “A female jumped on the hood to stop the vehicle.”

The vehicle then “broke free from the fence, with the female on the hood heading toward the exit of the park,” according to the log.

The vehicle then stopped, with the female still refusing to get off.

Burke was arrested shortly thereafter.
