Biddeford Man Led Maine State Police On A 111 mph Chase…With A 2-Year Old In The Car
The Maine Turnpike was the scene of a high speed chase Wednesday night, featuring the Maine State Police, a 25-year-old Biddeford man and unbeknownst to police, a 2-year-old girl as well.
According to WGME, a State Trooper clocked the 25-year-old man's car going 111 miles per hour on the Maine Turnpike. A short chase ensued, before the man crashed his car near the Saco exit. He then abandoned his car and the child, to run off into the woods in hopes of eluding the troopers. The child was not hurt in the crash and was eventually brought back to her mother.
The 25-year-old man stayed in the woods for nearly six hours, suffering minor hypothermia, before being apprehended by police and charged with multiple crimes.
