This morning at about 1:45 a.m., a man who failed to stop for police, crashed his vehicle, and then fled on foot, was tracked down and arrested by a trooper and his K-9 in Springfield.

Trooper Connor DeVivo and his Field Training Officer, Trooper Kaleshia Estabrook, attempted to stop a Honda Accord on Route 391 in Chicopee for a headlight violation and failing to stay within marked lanes. The vehicle refused to stop and exited the highway onto Center Street in Chicopee, at which time the pursuit was terminated.
