THORNTON -- Police had to use spike strips to stop a Massachusetts driver who allegedly drove up I-93 more than 100 miles per hour Friday evening.
Michael Alan, 68, of Methuen, Mass., faces charges of reckless driving and disobeying a police officer, after he allegedly refused to stop for police from several agencies who pursued his Toyota Camry on the northbound highway.
The incident began around 6 p.m. when an officer from Grafton County Sheriff’s Department tried to stop Alan’s vehicle in Thornton, according to a news release from state police.
The driver failed to stop and cruisers from Franconia and state police pursued it as it continued northbound at speeds “in excess of 100 miles per hour,” according to the release.
Littleton police deployed spike strips in the area of Exit 43, which caused the vehicle to come to a stop.
Police said Alan was arrested without incident. A court hearing is set for Nov. 15 in 2nd Circuit Court in Littleton.
