State Police: Man killed in crash in stolen car
By Globe Staff
A Haverhill man was killed Wednesday night after he crashed an allegedly stolen car on an Interstate 93 offramp in Woburn, police said. A passenger in the car survived the wreck and was arrested at the scene.
A state trooper had attempted to stop the Subaru Baja before it crashed on the Commerce Way offramp, said David Procopio, a State Police spokesman. Officials are in the process of reviewing the response to determine whether there was a pursuit by police, Procopio said.
State Police received a call from a motorist who reported that the Baja was being driven erratically. A state trooper ran the vehicle's license plate and determined that it had been reported stolen in Haverhill, Procopio said.
"There was an attempt by a trooper to stop the vehicle," Procopio said without providing specifics.
The Baja crashed just before 8:30 p.m. The driver was killed. His name was not released.
Police arrested the passenger, Christopher Harrell, 22, of Haverhill. Harrell is expected to be arraigned today in Lawrence District Court on charges of receiving a stolen motor vehicle.
