110 MPH Without Any Headlights – At Night

State Police had a heck of a chase up Interstate 93 tonight that passed through Wilmington and Tewksbury before coming to a crashing stop in Andover, where a fairly intense search was brought to a close with help from the airwing.
I first started listening in as the chase came up the highway in Stoneham at about 85 mph.
State Police spokesman David Procopio said it began in Boston, where officers tried to stop a black Chevrolet Malibu that nearly struck several pedestrians.
A state trooper tried to stop the vehicle on 93 north in the tunnel, and before long the driver was fleeing at 100 mph, according to police radio broadcasts.
By the time he got to the area of Route 129 in Wilmington, the driver was going was going 110 mph with his headlights off, according to state police radio broadcasts.
A trooper near the Dascomb Road exit in Tewksbury flattened the car’s tires with stop sticks, and the car crashed as it tried to navigate an exit ramp at Route 133 in Andover.
Two passengers remained in the car, and were not arrested.
The air-wing arrived within minutes, and used an infrared camera to spot the suspect crawling through the woods near the ramp from Route 133 to 93 South. A trooper in the helicopter then guided a trooper on the ground to where the suspect was hiding.
The trooper who made the arrest found the suspect in waist-deep snow, and led him out of the woods, according to police radio broadcasts.
Procopio said the driver has been initially identified as Eduardo Rodriguez, 31, of Lawrence.
Rodriguez will be charged with operating to endanger, failure to stop for police, and speeding.
UPDATE: Once Rodriguez was in custody, state police learned he was wanted on a warrant from Middlesex Superior Court charging him with armed home invasion. He was also wanted on a warrant from Woburn District Court charging him with threatening to commit a crime.
Procopio said Boston Police also plan to file charges in connection with this incident.
