A Quincy man is facing drunken driving charges after crashing into at least seven parked vehicles early Monday.
Quincy police was called to Davis Street at 12:23 a.m. Monday for a report of a car smashing into parked cars. When officers arrived in the neighborhood, they saw several residents outside and several damaged cars in the road.
“My wife got up out of bed. Next thing you know, she’s going, ‘Michael, get up, your car is on top of mine,” said Michael Malloy, whose car was struck by the suspect. “I get up and I come out front and my car is literally on top of hers. You can’t make this stuff up.”
Witnesses told police they saw Matthew Broadbent’s silver Cadillac hit several vehicles, back up, and continue to strike other vehicles until the car got stuck. One vehicle was hit with such force that it landed on top of another, police said.
Residents said they smashed Broadbent’s window to put his car in park and grab the keys.
“I’m just glad that we weren’t driving or in the cars,” said Malloy. “Both of us would be probably be in the hospital right now.”
Broadbent, 21, was charged with operating under the influence, liquor; marked lanes violation; operating recklessly; leaving the scene after property damage; and malicious destruction of property more than $250.
Five of the vehicles had to be towed from the scene.
“I’m pretty sure both our card are going to be totaled,” said Malloy. “I don’t even have a front end. You can’t even open the doors. That’s how bad it is.”
