A carjacking suspect was arrested in Dorchester Tuesday morning after allegedly crashing into three cars.

Massachusetts State Police tweeted Tuesday that it all started when a trooper spotted a car that had been stolen from Boston a few days ago. The suspect was wearing a ski mask and sunglasses, and refused to stop for police.

In his attempt to get away, police said, the suspect crashed into three other cars at the intersection of Morrisey Boulevard and Freeport Street before getting out of the car and attempting to flee the scene.
