CONCORD (CBS) – Two police cruisers crashed into each other during a chase overnight through several towns.

It all started in Brockton, just before 1 a.m. Thursday, when police went after a driver for motor vehicle violations on Route 24. It then went through Stoughton and Avon before State Police joined the pursuit when it moved onto Route 93 south to Interstate 95 north and then to Route 2 west.

“As the suspect vehicle exited Rt 2 at Exit 50 in Concord at approximately 1:10 a.m., the Brockton and MSP cruisers made contact with each other, causing them to lose the suspect vehicle,” State Police spokesman Dave Procopio said in a statement.

A Brockton officer ended up with minor injuries, according to Procopio.

The car they were chasing then went onto the eastbound side of Route 2, but drove in the westbound direction and police ended the pursuit.

That car, a 2011 Nissan Maxima, was later found abandoned in Lincoln on Morningside Lane near Sunnyside Lane.  The search ended at 3:45 a.m. The driver, later identified as a 24-year-old man, has not been found.

Lincoln Police said they believe the driver used Uber to get away after ditching the car.
