A 56-year-old Charlestown man is hospitalized, after the vehicle he used to lead police on a highway chase from Duxbury into Kingston, slammed into a guardrail – ending the chase Sunday afternoon on Route 3 south.
State Police say at about 4:47 pm – a 2003 Ford Crown Victoria – operated by Michael Millerick, slammed into a guardrail south of Exit 8 in Kingston. He was taken to South Shore Hospital under state police guard, with what they believe to be non life threatening injuries.
Authorities say at around 4:30 p.m. the Massachusetts State Police barracks in Norwell received calls reporting an erratic operator on Route 3 south driving a gold colored sedan – which was weaving, almost hit a guardrail, and almost went off the road. State Police about 11 minutes later, at about 4:41 p.m., caught up to the vehicle, and discovered the license plate on the vehicle, was registered to a blue Ford Explorer. At that point, troopers attempted to pull over the vehicle in question, but the operator fled at a high speed – which is when the chase started.
State Police say the exact charges against Millerick are being determined.
