Massachusetts State Police say they are searching for a suspect who rammed a car into a police cruiser in Chicopee, then fled.
The suspect was pulled over by a trooper for motor vehicle violations on Roosevelt Avenue near Springfield St. at 12:15 p.m. today, State Police said in a statement.
When both vehicles had come to a stop, the suspect’s black Ford Taurus accelerated and rammed into the cruiser. The car then drove through a chain-link fence surrounding a school’s ballfield and fled.
State Police located the abandoned car near 219 Saratoga St. Troopers are searching by helicopter and on foot for the suspect, officials said.
