MANCHESTER, NH – Just before 3:00 a.m. early Sunday morning, Manchester police attempted to stop the driver of a 2010 BMW who was speeding down Bridge Street.
According to Ink Link, the driver refused to pull over for the officers and led them on a chase north on Pine St. and then east on Pearl St.
Police suspended the chase because the BMW driver was driving recklessly and disregarding traffic lights. Police soon after located the vehicle, which had crashed into a home and utility pole at Pearl and Belmont St. and was now on fire.
Officers detained the driver and delivered first aid to the passenger of the vehicle. The 22-year-old driver was identified as Isaac Velez, of Hooksett. The passenger’s identity has not yet been released, but police say he was a 23-year-old man from Manchester.
The two suspects were taken to a local hospital with minor injuries. Velez is expected to be charged with six different offenses, including aggravated driving under the influence and disobeying a police officer.
