EAST BROOKFIELD, MASS. (WHDH) – A Worcester man who allegedly fled a traffic stop and crashed into a booze after leading police in a high-speed chase is expected to face a judge on Friday.
Curtis Medeiros, 54, is scheduled to face charges in East Brookfield District Court related to a rampage pursuit Wednesday night that reached speeds of 80 miles per hour, law enforcement officials said.
Police say they stopped Medeiros for a traffic stop in Leicester but he allegedly sped away as officers gave chase.
Witnesses said the chase sounded like something out of a movie.
“You could hear the roar of the engine, something was coming fast and it was the silver car and two police cruisers,” witness Matty Martin said. “It was like a NASCAR race, you could hear the cars go right past you. It was crazy.”
Leicester Police lost track of Medeiros, but Worcester authorities later told them he had collided with another car before crashing into a liquor store.
Medeiros and the other driver were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The incident is being further investigated.
