    Authorities are looking for a suspect after they say someone stole a street sweeper Sunday and drove it toward a Massachusetts State Police trooper.

    State police say they began searching on and around Interstate 93, north of Boston, for a stolen Ford F-350 street sweeper Sunday. Later, on Elm Street in Medford, the stolen vehicle allegedly drove at a trooper, who had to swerve out of the way.

    Police say the truck got back onto I-93 southbound. It was found abandoned on Exchange Street in Medford just before 12:15 p.m.

    Despite searching the area, police could not find the suspect.

    The vehicle was towed to a facility where state police could search it for evidence.
