Fall River Man Charged Following Rt. 24 Chase and Crash
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 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.
