A stolen Amazon delivery van led Massachusetts State Police on a slow pursuit through multiple communities Wednesday, authorities said.

The driver, identified as 23-year-old Cameron Mignon of Sharon, is accused of stealing the van in Needham around 6:30 p.m. State police said he hit a police cruiser in Needham and kept going.

The chase ended at a dead end on Glen Brook Road in Wellesley after about an hour.

A representative for Amazon referred questions about the investigation to local police. Drivers for the company are contracted, and do not work directly with Amazon itself.

Multiple witnesses captured the chase on video and shared it with NBC10 Boston.

A stolen Amazon delivery van led police on a pursuit that ended in Wellesley, authorities say.

Sam Messervy, 17, took video from inside his car after pulling over. He was driving with his mother when he the driver of the Amazon van nearly crashed into them head-on, he said.

"We were in the car driving down Glen, and we saw an Amazon truck coming down the corner. It almost ran off the side of the road," said Messervy. "It was coming towards us and swerved out of the way, and then right behind it, there was 10 or so police cars trailing."

Paige McCarthy was at home having dinner with her family around the corner from where the pursuit ended.

"They all started going really fast. They, like, did loops around this neighborhood a bunch of times, and then ended up over here, where it seemed to stop really abruptly," she said.

A wild multi-town police pursuit on Wednesday finally ended in Wellesley. Aerial video captured Massachusetts State Police cruisers cornering the stolen Amazon truck.

McCarthy described the incident as scary, especially since police chases are unusual in her neighborhood.

"We went inside, we locked the doors, made sure everything was safe," she said.

Mignon was taken into custody, and state police say the specific charges against him are pending. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.
