Police: Fleeing motorist hit speeds of 120 mph

PEABODY — A 29-year-old Lynn man was issued a court summons on numerous charges after allegedly fleeing police in a high speed chase on Route 128 Thursday night.

Peabody police Sgt. Stephen Zampitella reported he attempted to stop the vehicle on Route 128 North in Peabody shortly after 7 p.m. when the driver sped up to 120 mph, heading into Danvers.

The Danvers state police barracks was notified and an alert was sent out to area departments to watch for a white man in his 20s with light hair in a crew cut style and wearing a black shirt.

A Beverly officer later reported locating the suspect’s vehicle unoccupied on Bresnahan Court in Beverly, which is just down from Beverly Hospital.

Peabody police said the suspect would be charged with failure to stop for police, reckless driving, speeding, a subsequent offense of driving with a suspended license and operating an unregistered and uninsured vehicle.
