Update Regarding MSP Interaction with Suspect who Later Drove Into Fenway Park


Numerous media outlets have asked about prior MSP involvement with the operator/vehicle that was involved in a crash at the United States Coast Guard base in Boston this morning before then driving into Gate C at Fenway Park.

 

State Police were involved in two responses earlier this morning, prior to those crashes, involving the operator and vehicle in question.

 

At 7:03 AM today (Monday, May 6, 2024) a Trooper assigned to the State Police-Revere Barracks was flagged down by a motorist in the area of Ocean Avenue and Revere Street. That motorist reported that a vehicle, later determined to be a 2024 Honda Accord, was being operated erratically and aggressively in the area. The Trooper then observed the suspect vehicle passing his location on Ocean Avenue. The female operator honked the car’s horn and yelled something before speeding off.

 

The Trooper activated his cruiser’s lights and siren and attempted to stop the Honda. The vehicle refused to stop; because of the density of the area no pursuit was initiated. The vehicle was last seen on Revere Street in the area of St. Anthony’s Church. The vehicle was determined to be registered to COLLEEN MARIE GIBBS, 48, of Salem, who is believed to have been the operator. The vehicle and suspect information was broadcast by MSP to other units.

 

At 7:30 AM Troopers from the State Police-Tunnels Barracks responded to reports of a hit and run crash at the entrance to the Ted Williams Tunnel in East Boston. Subsequent investigation determined that the same operator who fled from the Trooper in Revere had struck two vehicles at the entrance to the Tunnel and fled scene. The motorists whose vehicles were struck had no apparent injuries.

 

State Police will seek charges for the motor vehicle offenses committed by the suspect in Revere and East Boston.

 

The suspect was subsequently involved in the incidents at the USCG base and Fenway Park, both of which are within Boston Police jurisdiction. Please contact BPD for information on those incidents.
