Teen charged after high speed police chase
HUDSON – A 16-year-old boy was arrested Friday morning after a two-town, high speed police chase that ended with a slightly damaged Londonderry police cruiser and a heavily damaged 2007 Toyota Sequoia.
No one was injured in the incident that started just after 12:30 a.m. when Londonderry police tried to pull over the Toyota.
The car crossed the town line into Hudson, traveling at a high rate of speed on Griffin Road. The Londonderry cruiser called off the chase because of the speed but continued to follow the SUV at a safe distance.
Police said the Toyota traveled south on Griffin Road to Robinson Road, where it pulled into a driveway at the intersection with Lawrence Road.
As the Londonderry cruiser approached the intersection, the Toyota backed into it and then took off again at a high rate of speed.
As the SUV sped away, Lt. Charles Dyac said it hit something – investigators believe it might have been a stone wall – flattening front and rear tires on it.
The teen driver then allegedly ran from the scene, but officers caught him a short time later in a swampy wooded area on Robinson Road.
He is charged with disobeying a police officer, conduct after an accident, reckless driving and operating a motor vehicle without a license.
What's next:The teen will be arraigned July 11 in Juvenile Court at 9th Circuit Court, Nashua District Division.
