Massachusetts State Police arrested Richard S. Saunders, of Reading, on Monday night on Motor Vehicle Charges after he allegedly drove the wrong way on I-93 in Boston.
Saunders was charges with Reckless Driving, Receiving Stolen Motor Vehicle, and Failure to Stop for Police.
According to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, Massachusetts State Police began pursuing a minivan that had been reported out of Medford earlier Monday morning. The ‘slow-speed’ pursuit reportedly began in Dorchester and eventually led into South Boston and onto I-93.
State Police called off the pursuit for safety concerns when the vehicle began going the wrong way on I-93, but the minivan nonetheless still caused a 4 car crash and eventually exited the highway at the Neponset Circle exit.
Saunders had allegedly fled the vehicle and was arrested after he was allegedly found hiding under a pickup truck.
