Police: New Hampshire Teen Apprehended After Car Chase on Route 101
A New Hampshire teenager was apprehended after allegedly leading police on a car chase on Route 101 in Raymond early Sunday morning, according to New Hampshire State Police.
Police said they first noticed the vehicle, identified only as a Hyundai sedan, traveling at a high rate of speed near Exit 5 at 4:40 a.m., according to a press release.
The Hyundai was traveling 95 mph, police allege, and a state trooper began to follow and eventually activated his vehicle's emergency lighting in an attempt to stop the vehicle, per the release.
Police said the Hyundai failed to yield to the stop and took the off ramp near Exit 6, allegedly increasing its speed as it proceeded through the intersection of Depot Road in what police called a "deliberate attempt to elude apprehension," the release said.
After both vehicles had left the highway, the pursuit continued back on Route 101, police said, and the Hyundai finally yielded near Exit 7, according to the release.
Sydney Moody, 19, of Manchester was taken into custody and charged with reckless driving, disobeying an officer, driving after suspension and possession of a controlled drug, per police.
Police said Moody was released on bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on April 6.
New Hampshire State Police Troop A said it was assisted by the Epping Police Department during the incident.
