State Police joined officers from Henniker and Hopkinton who tried to stop a driver speeding through their towns in a stolen vehicle late Saturday night, authorities said.
Around 11:25 p.m., state troopers were asked to assist with a motor vehicle pursuit after a 2017 gray Hyundai Tuscan failed to pull over for officers attempting to conduct a stop for motor vehicle violations.
“The vehicle was reported to be traveling over 100 MPH and was exhibiting lane control issues,” State Police said in a statement released Sunday.
In Hopkinton, the driver reached Interstate 89 South in the town of Hopkinton.
Troopers used tire deflation devices to disable the vehicle, forcing it to stop in the area of Exit 1 on Interstate 89 South in Bow.
The juvenile driver was charged with receiving stolen property, reckless conduct with a deadly weapon, disobeying a police officer, reckless operation and operating without a valid license.
