Police chase from Framingham to Boston ends with arrest outside South Station

BOSTON (WHDH) - A police pursuit early Thursday morning from Framingham to Boston ended with the arrest of a break-in suspect outside South Station.

Around 3:30 a.m., Massachusetts State Police received a report that the Framingham Police Department was pursuing a Ford Escape on the Massachusetts Turnpike eastbound.

Officials said the vehicle was wanted in connected with a reported breaking-in at a business in the city.

A trooper deployed a tire deflation device on the Pike in Weston, which damaged two tires on the car.

Police said the suspect, 36-year-old Richard Hughes, of Framingham, continued to drive east on the Pike with cruisers in pursuit.

Hughes took the ramp to the South Station garage, where the car struck a state police cruiser, officials added. The trooper inside the cruiser did not suffer any injuries.

A state police K-9 unit apprehended the Hughes, who was then taken to a local hospital.

Hughes is facing a slew of charges, including breaking entering, trespassing and other violations stemming from the chase.
