Fast and the Furious: Driver Ignites Car Chase on Manchester Highway, Police Say
MANCHESTER — Massachusetts man ignites car chase on Interstate 93.
A 2011 Kia traveled at an excessive speed down Wellington Road on Wednesday morning. The vehicle weaved in between cars, attempting to gain access to I-93, police said.
An officer witnessed the vehicle's excessive speed and felt the operator's driving was unsafe and a danger to others due to the slick road conditions, police said.
The officer activated his emergency lights and pursued the vehicle for a motor vehicle stop.
Unable to catch up with the Kia on Wellington Road, police said the officer chased the vehicle south on I-93 while watching the operator weave in and out of traffic. The officer then pulled the driver over.
The driver was identified as Marcus Giancola, 36, of Bellingham, Massachusetts. Giancola was charged for disobeying a police officer and issued a motor vehicle summons for negligent driving, police said.
He is scheduled to appear in Manchester district court on Jan. 17.
