Massachusetts driver charged after chase, crash on Everett Turnpike
Colin P. Bell of Millis, Mass., was arrested and charged with felony reckless conduct, aggravated DWI and disobeying a police officer, according to state police.
About 12:40 a.m., another driver called police to report that she was following a car with a flat tire that was “all over the road” on the northbound side of the turnpike, according to a news release.
A state trooper located the vehicle just north of Exit 5 but when he activated his cruiser's blue lights, the vehicle accelerated to more than 110 miles per hour, police said. In less than a minute, the vehicle crashed into the center guard rail, just north of the Nashua/Merrimack line.
Bell was not injured in the crash and refused medical treatment, police said. He was taken to the state police barracks and given a Breathalyzer test, which revealed an alcohol-content level of .18 percent, more than twice the legal limit, police said.
He is being held on $10,000 cash bail pending a court appearance on Monday in 9th Circuit Court, Nashua district.
Police said Bell's 2006 Subaru WRX was destroyed in the crash, and a large section of the steel guard rail was damaged.
