    A man was hospitalized after crashing multiple times following a high-speed police chase through Rehoboth and Seekonk, Massachusetts.

    Police identified the man as Jonathan Cruz, 33, of Rehoboth and said he has serious injuries.

    Officer Gil Lima attempted to stop Cruz on Winthrop Street Saturday around 9 p.m. but Cruz tried to allude Lima, accelerating and reversing direction, according to police.

    Police say that as the chase continued, Cruz struck two trees and a guardrail before the Seekonk Fire Department had to extricate him from his vehicle.
