Peabody man charged with Boston hit-run

A Peabody man was arrested after a hit-and-run accident in Boston early yesterday morning.

Everett W. Strauss, 30, was seen by foot patrolmen working the area when his Mercury Grand Marquis struck a woman crossing Lansdowne Street, according to a press release from the Boston Police Department.

“The vehicle did not attempt to stop after striking the victim,” even as police attempted to pull it over, according to the release.

A description of the vehicle was broadcast, and officers on Boylston Street stopped a car that they believed was a match. According to police, they “positively identified the motor vehicle and operator as involved in the accident.”

The victim was taken to Beth Israel Hospital. Police did not release her name or condition.

Strauss was charged with leaving the scene of an accident with personal injury and possession of a Class D drug.
