The pursuit continued on local roads and highways from Cape Cod to Middleborough, including Route 6, Route 3, Route 44, Route 105, Route 28, and Route 495. Several local police departments were involved in the pursuit, including Barnstable, Sandwich, Plymouth, Carver, Lakeville, and Middleborough, with Massachusetts State Police cruisers maintaining a secondary, supporting role. A helicopter and flight crew from the Massachusetts State Police Air Wing was particularly instrumental in maintaining visual contact with the fleeing suspect. Video footage from the Air Wing over-flight support mission is included below.
During the pursuit, the suspect vehicle drove at an extremely high rate of speed, at times approximately 100mph, and contrary to traffic on Route 44 in Plymouth and Route 495 in Middleborough. Two Sandwich Police cruisers were damaged during the pursuit when they maneuvered to avoid being struck by the fleeing vehicle.
The vehicle eventually stopped on the ramp from Route 44 West to Route 495 North after striking two local police cruisers, one from Lakeville and one from Middleborough.
The operator, CARY GUY, 24, of Dighton, was placed under arrest by State Police and booked at the Middleborough Barracks on the following charges:
1. Failure to Stop for a Police Officer
2. Operating to Endanger
3. Operating after License Revocation
Additional charges will likely be forthcoming from local departments.
GUY was held without bail pending his arraignment in Wareham District Court tomorrow.
There were no injuries to any parties as a result of this pursuit.
