A Fall River man will face charges after allegedly fleeing from police at a high rate of speed and causing a multi-vehicle crash on Rt. 24.

At around 3:45 p.m. Monday, a Massachusetts State Police trooper tried to stop a red Toyota Corolla on Rt. 24 in Randolph for equipment violations and excessive window tint. State police say 30-year-old Michael Garcia-Robles, of Fall River, refused to stop, drove off at a high rate of speed, and eventually struck a vehicle in traffic, causing a multi-vehicle crash. The Toyota finally stopped in Avon north of Exit 18 near the Brockton line.

Garcia-Robles allegedly ran from the scene and resisted arrest following the crash, but was taken into custody. He was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton to be evaluated for potential injuries. The occupants of other vehicles involved in the crash were not injured, officials said.

Garcia-Robles will be charged once he is released from the hospital, state police said. As of Monday evening, the exact charges had yet to be determined.
