QUINCY (CBS) – A driver who fled State Police in Quincy was killed after his car crashed over a sea wall and onto a beach Monday.
State Police say a trooper pulled the suspect over around 9 p.m., moments before the crash on Quincy Shore Drive, for motor vehicle violations.
“After the Trooper gathered the suspect’s information and was processing the motor vehicle stop, the suspect suddenly drove away at a high rate of speed,” State Police said. “The Trooper did not engage in a pursuit.”
