Md. man held after police chase in Burlington

A Maryland man is being held without bail after allegedly causing a car crash that injured another person in Burlington Monday night.

The incident began when a Burlington police officer saw a vehicle parked in a handicapped-parking space at the Burlington Mall at about 7 p.m., police said.

The driver, identified as Haught, allegedly sped away, hitting a parked police cruiser and leading police on a high-speed chase during which officers fired at him. The vehicle eventually struck two other cars, police said, sending one person to Lahey Hospital and Medical Center.

That person was expected to survive, police said.
