Bad trip: A vehicle ran two red lights before crashing into a dump truck at the intersection of state Route 7 and University Boulevard, Tuesday. Officers said when they arrived on scene they found a disoriented female sitting on the guardrail crying. A witness told police he’d seen a male dressed in black exit the car and jump over the guardrail, then to the railroad tracks. The woman initially told police she was behind the wheel, but eventually admitted to ambulance personnel the car was registered to her but she didn’t have a valid license so when a man at a downtown gas station offered to drive her to Wellsville, she accepted his offer. Police said the woman had a cell phone in her hand when they talked to her, but they found another on the floor and a third in the glove box.

Contradiction: A man walking to a community market with a juvenile claimed he told another man walking two dogs to keep his distance, and that minutes later the man punched him. Surveillance footage showed a man who’d been walking his dogs was trying to exit the store when the other man started yelling at him, so he turned around and they argued. And at one point he slapped or punched the other man. The man, located later in the day, admitted taking a swing at the other guy but said he’d kept harassing him and had used derogatory language to address him.

Overdose: Police and city ambulance personnel resuscitated two individuals who appeared to be overdosing Wednesday.

The same man was behind the wheel and again, police said he didn’t appear impaired, though he did tell them he’d taken blood pressure medicine.

Kicking: A woman in the 1400 block of Euclid Avenue said a man kicked her door Wednesday to the point where it won’t lock anymore and punched her in the face before fleeing the scene.
