BOW, NH – A man is facing multiple charges after a high-speed police pursuit ended on I-89 in Bow today, according to the New Hampshire State Police.
Witnesses initially spotted a person driving a red BMW at a high rate of speed and in an erratic manner, reportedly swerving between lanes on I-89 S in New London. In Hopkinton, a Trooper was able to catch up to the driver of a red 2016 Honda Accord, who was still traveling at a high rate of speed after initially getting off the interstate in order to avoid police. A pursuit then ensued after the driver allegedly refused to pull over for a traffic stop.
Troopers used tire deflation devices near Exit 2 in Bow, which caused one of the Honda’s tires to deflate.
The driver then went through Exit 1, where he crashed into a stop sign near Tyler Road and Logging Hill Road. He was later taken into police custody without further incident.
The suspect, identified as 34-year-old Jeffrey Dennis, is facing multiple charges in connection with the crash, including reckless operation of a motor vehicle, reckless conduct with a deadly weapon, disobeying a police officer, speeding, and failure to yield at a stop sign. He was taken into State custody after being found in violation of his parole.
No injuries were reported in the crash.
The incident remains under investigation at this time.
