A Massachusetts man is facing multiple charges after he allegedly carjacked a woman in the parking lot of a Stop & Shop in Danvers and then proceeded to lead police on a chase onto Interstate 95.

State police said the suspect, a 38-year-old man, carjacked a woman in the parking lot of the Stop & Shop on Newbury Street in Danvers and fled up Route 97 to I-95. The vehicle, a red Toyota Corolla, had damage from a crash the man was in before the police pursuit began, and state police said they ultimately wound up stopping him just north of the Ferncroft Rotary on the Danvers-Boxford line.
