(WFSB) – A man is facing charges after he allegedly raced and eluded state police on Interstate 95, according to authorities.
It happened Sunday night around 8:36 p.m. State police were notified that two vehicles were racing on I-95 north near Exit 40 in Milford.
A state trooper located two BMWs near Exit 44. The drivers were weaving through traffic at speeds of more than 90 mph, police said.
“The trooper initiated a traffic stop by activating their vehicle’s emergency lights and sirens,” said state police.
The driver of a blue BMW cut in and out of traffic and escaped the trooper.
Police learned the car was registered to a Norwalk resident.
Later that night, 20-year-old Jake Palmer admitted to police that he was driving the BMW.
Palmer was charged with engaging police in pursuit, reckless driving, racing on a limited access highway, reckless endangerment in the second-degree, and interfering with a police officer.
He was released on a $5,000 bond and is due in court next month.
