    A man who may have been involved in several crimes in northern New Hampshire led police on a high-speed pursuit, according to state police.

    The chase began in Concord on I-93 south just before midnight, when the operator of a 2007 Toyota Tundra Pickup Truck bearing a N.H. Registration plate refused to stop for hazardous driving.

    He led police on a pursuit on I-93, I-293 and the F.E. Everett Turnpike at speeds between 50 and 100 mph.

    Officers eventually deployed spike strips, which the vehicle hit, causing it to come to a rest off the Exit 3 southbound off-ramp.
