The rider was finally caught on Mystic Avenue in Medford where EMS was on the scene once the chase came to an end.
Fortunately, this dangerous driving from the rider didn’t end in an accident between him or anyone else on the roads – an incredible result from a very scary scenario that ended at 11am local time.
That is really light traffic for 93 at that time of day
