    Two men were taken into custody early Saturday morning following an hour-long, high-speed pursuit in Massachusetts.

    State police said they were notified of a reported stolen Ford Explorer out of Lynn at about 11:45 p.m. Friday.

    A short time later, troopers spotted the SUV on Trapello Road in Waltham and attempted to stop the driver. Authorities said the driver fled onto Interstate 95 southbound then onto Interstate 93 southbound. The suspect kept driving until police were able to deploy a tire deflation device near exit 8 in Plymouth where he crashed.

    The driver, identified as Timothy Crane, 24, of Lynn, and his passenger, Darian Almonte, 19, of Lynn, were apprehended without further incident.

    One trooper had to be checked out at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital for exposure to bodily fluid during the apprehension of the suspects.

    Police said during the pursuit, Crane struck four cruisers.

    Crane is facing larceny of a motor vehicle, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and other motor vehicle offenses. 

    Almonte is charged with larceny of a motor vehicle.

    Both men are being held on bail pending their arraignments Tuesday.
