Police responded to a series of motor vehicle related incidents beginning late last week and through the weekend.

A 29-year-old Oak Bluffs man was arrested on Thursday after he allegedly attacked a vehicle operator and stole a landscaping truck, Oak Bluffs Sgt. Michael Marchand said.

The incident occurred on Garvin street near Dukes County avenue. The man reportedly approached the driver of the vehicle asking for a ride, Mr. Marchand said. When the driver said he was not going in the man’s direction, the man hit him in the face repeatedly and dragged him from the vehicle, Sergeant Marchand said. The man then allegedly took a landscaping tool out of the vehicle and threatened the driver, who fled.

The man was apprehended by police in Vineyard Haven and the vehicle was returned without damage. The driver of the vehicle was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The Oak Bluffs man was charged with unarmed robbery, assault with a dangerous weapon, larceny of a motor vehicle, assault for the purpose of stealing a motor vehicle, and vandalism of property related to an earlier incident when he damaged a taxi.

Sergeant Marchand also reported a motor vehicle accident on Saturday morning at about 4 a.m. A 22-year-old Edgartown man reportedly lost control of his 2004 BMW on County Road near Tower Ridge Road. The call came from a nearby resident who heard a loud bang followed by the continuous sound of a car horn.

Mr. Marchand said the driver was medically evacuated off-Island. He was charged with OUI liquor, marked lanes violation, unlicensed operation, no inspection and negligent operation of a motor vehicle.

In Aquinnah at about 5:20 p.m. on Friday evening, police responded to a two-car motor vehicle accident on Moshup Trail that occurred as a black Jeep attempted to pass two cyclists at a curve in the road, Chief Randhi Belain said. A black Mercedes Benz was traveling in the opposite direction and the two cars obliquely collided. The Jeep, which had two passengers inside in addition to the driver, flipped over on the road. The Mercedes, which carried a driver and one passenger, careened off the road into the brush, the chief said.

The driver of the Jeep was cited with marked lanes violation and negligent operation of a motor vehicle. The driver of the Mercedes was cited for driving at a speed greater than reasonable. The three occupants of the Jeep and one of the cyclists were all transported to the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital for treatment.

Police in Edgartown, West Tisbury, Chilmark and Vineyard Haven reported weekends without major incidents.
