BOSTON (CBS) – A driver was arrested early Wednesday morning after leading Massachusetts State Police on a chase from Hopkinton to Dorchester overnight.
A witness told state police that a driver was driving “irregularly” on the eastbound side of the Massachusetts Turnpike in Hopkinton around 6 p.m. 1:15. A soldier tried to stop the car, but it took off.
The trooper went after it, but backed away as the car ran into a road construction work on Pike in Southboro.
When the car came out of the work zone in Natick, state police resumed the chase again.
Further down the highway, police said they “exposed tire emptying devices at several points.” It emptied the air of all four tires on the car, and it eventually stopped on Route 93 south of Dorchester.
“The vehicle operator was evaluated on the spot by the Boston EMS, taken into custody and transported back to the State Police-Charlton Barracks for reservation,” State Police spokesman Dave Procopio said in a statement.
The driver’s name has not been released.
