Massachusetts man arrested after chase in which he hit NH State Police patrol car

PORTSMOUTH – A Massachusetts man was arrested late Monday night after leading police on a chase that ended in a collision with a New Hampshire State Police patrol car.

At approximately 11:45 p.m., Trooper Cameron Vetter of Troop A observed a gray 2012 Toyota Camry traveling north on Interstate 95 at over 100 mph and changing lanes erratically.

When Vetter attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver, later identified as Steven Hebert, 42, of Worcester, Massachusetts, accelerated and began the pursuit.

The Camry was reported stolen in Wilmington, Massachusetts, and continued on to Kittery, Maine. New Hampshire police pursued it, and Maine authorities also joined the pursuit.

Kittery Police took over the trail when the suspect exited I-95 at Exit 3.

The pursuit ended in York, Maine, when Hebert turned down a dead end street, turned around and collided with Officer Matthew Dushame’s patrol car.

He was arrested without further incident and no injuries were reported.

Hebert faces multiple charges in both Maine and New Hampshire related to the pursuit and possession of the stolen vehicle.

The New Hampshire State Police were assisted by the Maine State Police, Kittery Police Department, York Police Department and local emergency services.

Authorities are asking anyone with further information to contact Trooper Vetter at (603) 223-4381 or via email at (email protected).
