    (Published Sunday, Feb. 19, 2017)

    Police in Massachusetts are searching for a driver who sped away from an officer and fled the scene after crashing into a minivan.

    An officer from the West Bridgewater Police Department was near the intersection of Spring and North Elm Street when another car passed him. Around 6:30 p.m., the officer signaled the vehicle to pull over, but when he approached the car the suspect sped off. Rather than chasing after the car, the officer called for backup.

    Police say the car was traveling at speeds up to 100 miles per hour when it slammed into another car shortly after. The crash happened in between Copeland and North Elm Streets in Brockton. The person in the car that was struck was transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

    With the help of a K9 unit, Massachusetts State Police along with the West Bridgewater Police Department tracked one of the suspects to Samuel Avenue in West Bridgewater. 

    No arrests have been made at this time, but an arrest warrant has been issued.

    Police said further details would be available when the suspect is in custody.
