    A suspect is in custody after a vehicle stolen in Boston crashed into an MBTA bus and two other vehicles Wednesday in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

    The incident began with the alleged carjacking of a Chinese food delivery driver in Boston.

    The incident was initially reported as a fight at 41 Edgerly Road in Boston, police in that city say.

    Witness Matthew Woods said the suspect hit the driver several times with a baton and eventually got away with the vehicle. Woods said the driver was left badly beaten with cuts and bruises.

    "One of my friends tried to stop it," Woods recalled of the fight.

    Police said the suspect eventually crashed into the MBTA bus at the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and Vassar Street where he was arrested at the scene.

    The MBTA confirms no one on board the bus suffered injuries.

    The driver delivers for Dumpling Palace. His colleague, Feng Ping, did not want to reveal his name, but says he’s now recovering at home.

    "He’s OK now, he’s a good guy," said Ping.

    She said after the attack, the restaurant is now putting in a new policy for delivery drivers.

    "When you sit down in car, waiting on somebody, you have to lock the door. Don’t do it again, it’s very dangerous," said Ping.

    According to Cambridge Police, the suspect is being booked at the Boston Police Department. It's unclear exactly what charges he will face.
