A wild afternoon in Windham, Maine culminated with a local man and his passenger filmed a high speed chaser who crashed into his vehicle. A 91 year-old man and 82 year-old woman in the car that was crashed into were transported to Maine Medical Center with serious but non-life threatening injuries. A 60 year-old man in that car was also injured,
29 year-old Dale Tucker has been arrested after colliding into vehicles while attempting to flee from police in Cumberland County, Maine. He left at least three people seriously injured.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, deputies discontinued the chase after Tucker began driving recklessly. Earlier in the day, Tucker was involved in what police described as a “domestic dispute” in Casco, Maine, where he was accused making threats to a residence in Windham and causing harm.
Tucker was later spotted by an officer at the intersection of Roosevelt Trail and Route 35 in Windham, and was asked to pull over. Instead, Tucker drove off at high speed, prompting the officer to begin pursuit. The chase ended when two other Cumberland County deputies placed a spike mat across the road on Route 302 at the Raymond/Windham line.
Tyler Bisson, who was on the opposite side of the road as the spike was being deployed, was able to capture on his cell phone the moment Tucker came speeding around the corner and attempted to swerve around the device. Tucker was arrested and taken to MMC with non-life threatening injuries. He faces charges of aggravated driving to endanger, aggravated eluding of a law enforcement officer, criminal speed and failure to maintain control of a vehicle.
