Massachusetts State Troopers were assisting Lowell Police Department officers after Lowell residents made multiple complaints about several people riding their dirt bikes and ATVs on the street in a “reckless and dangerous” manner.

After state troopers spotted a dirt biker rider driving erratically, they signaled him to stop several times but their pleas were ignored. The rider instead sped up, slamming into a cruiser and injuring the trooper inside before striking a second car. He then got up and tried to continue fleeing before being apprehended.

Police have not released the identity of the dirt bike rider, only identifying him as a 21-year old male.

Injuries to the trooper were to both his upper and lower body but minor in nature.
