According to the Massachusetts State Police, a 21 year-old man was killed early Wednesday morning in a car accident, which took place while he was fleeing from the police who were trying to pull the man over for speeding on Interstate 391.
The man, who had been ejected from his motor vehicle, was taken to the Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, Massachusetts, where he was pronounced dead on arrival. The driver’s identity is being withheld at this time pending next of kin notification.
Police say that the man was speeding in his SUV on Interstate 391 near Chicopee, Massachusetts at around 12:30 a.m. A that time, the police attempted to pull him over for a routine traffic stop. The man then proceeded to get off the highway at Exit 2 and came to a stop. Once the officer exited his vehicle to approach the car, however, the man sped away and got back onto Interstate 391.
The trooper, who had lost sight of the motor vehicle, found the car smashed and the driver lying outside of the vehicle.
Following the auto accident, police discovered that the man only had a learner’s permit and not a full driver’s license. They also found a replica handgun and a substantial amount of money in the SUV.
State Police continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the man’s wrongful death and what may have prompted him to speed away from the trooper.
