BOSTON (AP) — Police are searching for a man and a woman after a cabbie reported they used a Taser on him while stealing his taxi in Boston.

The incident took place shortly before 3 a.m. Friday on Interstate 93 southbound in the city’s Dorchester neighborhood.

State police say troopers arriving in the area found the taxi driver and broadcast a description of the cab, which was later seen by another trooper driving erratically on Blue Hill Avenue before crashing into a utility pole.

Police say the suspects ran away from the crash, and have yet to be located.
