BROOKLINE (CBS) – A driver was arrested early Tuesday morning after police say he led them on a chase down Route 9 through several towns before hitting two police cruisers.
Police say 39-year-old Ender Durgut refused to pull over for police in Natick around 2:30 a.m. for motor vehicle violations and began a pursuit that stretched all the way to Brookline.
At one point, officers threw down stop-sticks and blew out his tires near Eliot Street in Newton, but Durgut continued eastbound on four flats.
He crashed into a State Police cruiser and then sideswiped a Brookline Police cruiser before finally stopping in Brookline around 3 a.m.
A Brookline officer suffered cuts to his hand while helping pull Durgut out of his SUV.
Durgut was arrested and then taken to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, where he was treated for injuries to his face.
He’s charged with negligent operation, failure to stop, leaving the scene of a crash, and other motor vehicle violations.
