One injured in rotary accident
Two women were cited after a crash that took one woman to the hospital early this morning, police said.

Officers responded to the report of a 2004 Mercury Mountaineer on its roof and Chrysler PT Cruiser on its side next to a tree at the Quincy rotary right before the Fore River Bridge at 1:17 a.m. Thursday.

Officers spoke to the driver of the PT Cruiser, a 20-year-old female from Weymouth, who said she and her friends were at the Half Door Pub in Quincy when they left to drive home to Weymouth.

The driver said she came to the rotary too fast, as did the other car. When the Mercury swerved into the outside lane, she swerved to avoid an impact, causing it to veer off the road and hit a small tree, police said.

According to police, the driver of the Mercury also said she was racing around and was in the inside lane of the rotary. She was driving 50 miles per hour and lost control of the car.

All parties passed sobriety tests. A passenger was transported to Quincy Medical Center by ambulance with pain to her left arm and to her head.

The Mercury driver, Kimberly Clooney, 20, of Weymouth, and the PT Cruiser driver, Lauren Silva, 20, of Weymouth, were cited for operating to endanger.

Man steals cash from CVS unnoticed
Police responded to a CVS store at 5:30 this morning after the manager reported a robbery.

Although no store employee spotted the man, security cameras show a white man with a thin build enter the store and go to the corner with the pharmacy. The suspect allegedly spent 1-2 minutes trying to get the drawer out of the register.

The suspect finally took out the cash drawer from the register, attempted to leave through the back door, which was locked, and instead walked up an aisle and out the front door.

A police dog could not locate the suspect; however, store employees said they recognized the man.

According to the shift supervisor, the suspect was in the store two other times. He bought a drink the first time, and later came to pick up three prescriptions from Quincy Medical Center.

Officers retrieved the name from the pharmacist and are seeking a warrant for his arrest. The man is believed to be homeless.

Police said he will be charged with larceny from a building. His name has not yet been released as he has not yet been charged.
