Suspect in Custody After Police Chase From Framingham to Boston

A 36-year-old man is in custody following a police chase from Framingham to Boston.

Framingham police were pursuing a Ford Escape on the Mass Pike eastbound early Thursday morning in connection with a reported breaking and entering. Massachusetts State Police joined the pursuit around 3:30 a.m.

A state trooper deployed a tire deflation device on the Mass Pike in Weston, damaging two tires on the suspect's vehicle.

The suspect, later identified as Richard M. Hughes, of Framingham, continued to drive on the Pike with both Framingham and state police in pursuit.

He took the ramp to the South Station garage, where his vehicle struck a state police cruiser, according to police.

Hughes was eventually apprehended by a state police K-9 unit. He was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

State police charged him with negligent operation of a motor vehicle, operating a motor vehicle after license suspension or revocation and failure to stop for police.

He could face additional charges out of Framingham.
