WCVB reports that the driver who allegedly ran over a motorcyclist in Franklin Square in Melrose on Sunday morning is a 76-year-old Stoneham resident now in custody.
said in a statement earlier Sunday afternoon that the driver, who WCVB identified as Eugene Ledonne, had stopped behind the motorcyclist at a red light on Main Street northbound at Franklin and Green streets, and when the light turned green, Ledonne hit the motorcyclist from behind and knocked him off the bike.
"The sedan then travelled forward over the operator," the police statement said. "The operator of the sedan then placed his vehicle in reverse, and travelled back and forth over the operator several times. This is apparent based on witness accounts at the scene."
Ledonne currently faces a charge of leaving the scene of a motor vehicle crash after causing personal injury, according to the Melrose Police statement.
