Re­vere po­lice offi cer in­jured in car chase

Metro USA (Boston) - - BOSTON - JA­SON NUCKOLLS

A Re­vere po­lice of­fi­cer was hos­pi­tal­ized Thurs­day due to in­juries sus­tained when he crashed into a pole dur­ing an early morn­ing chase.

The chase was headed into Chelsea from nearby Re­vere, Chelsea Po­lice Chief Brian Kyes told WCVB, when the of­fi­cer’s cruiser, a Ford Ex­plorer, crashed along Marginal Street into a pole.

Franch­esco Or­tiz, who was work­ing nearby and helped to pull the of­fi­cer from the wrecked ve­hi­cle, told CBS, “He was just in pain, so much pain. He couldn’t even talk. He was just like, ‘ Help me.’”

The chase be­gan shortly be­fore 8 a. m. when the of­fi­cer was dis­patched due to a re­ported sus­pi­cious party in a mo­tor ve­hi­cle on Park Av­enue in Re­vere, WCVB re­ported.

That call turned into the high- speed chase that in­jured the of­fi­cer and al­lowed the sus­pect to suc­cess­fully flee, CBS stated. He has not been caught.

The of­fi­cer, whose name has not been re­leased, was taken to Mas­sachusetts Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal with non- lifethreat­en­ing in­juries, ac­cord­ing to WCVB.
