A state trooper was parked in Shrewsbury near Exit 22 of I-290 when he saw the car speed past him.
The trooper tried to stop the driver of the 2007 Dodge Caliber, but he reached about 100 MPH as he was changing lanes and driving in the breakdown lane.
When the driver, Nathan Doran, 25, of Manchester, N.H., reached what police called a “congested construction zone” in Worcester, troopers stopped the chase.
State Police said Doran was seen getting onto Route 20 westbound in Auburn.READ MORE: Surveillance Video Shows Suspect Smashing Into, Running From Franklin Jewelry Store During Robbery

Eventually, troopers positioned their cruisers in the road so Doran could no long evade them. He was arrested and taken to Holden for the booking process.
The New Hampshire resident faces 11 charges following the chase, including operating under the influence of drugs, resisting arrest, and speeding.MORE NEWS: Barack Obama's 60th Birthday Party On Martha's Vineyard This Weekend To Have COVID Safety Coordinator
