CSPD responded to a crash where a suspect hit six vehicles causing one car to roll over Friday, Sept. 22, just after after 3 p.m.
Officers discovered that the incident began at 4900 New Car Drive when the suspect allegedly hit a vehicle in a parking lot. The suspect drove away and hit a separate vehicle near Austin Bluffs and Woodmen.
