HADLEY, Mass. (WWLP) – A teen driver was arrested in Hadley Sunday following a short police chase that ended in a crash.
Hadley Police Lt. Mitchell Kuc told 22News officers tried to pull over 19-year-old Symon Dastoli, of Florence, on South Maple Street at 4:13 p.m. for not appropriately displaying registration plates.
Instead of stopping, Dastoli allegedly drove over two sets of curbs and continued to travel down South Maple Street at a high rate of speed, forcing other cars off the road.
Kuc said Dastoli’s car came to a stop in a corn field after he lost control at the intersection of South Maple Street and East Hadley Road and struck a rock.
Dastoli is now facing the following charges:
- Attaching wrong registration plates
- Unregistered motor vehicle
- License suspended
- Failure to stop for police
- Operating to endanger
- Marked lanes violation
- Failure to stop (sign)
- Disorderly conduct
- Injury/Deface property
In addition to the charges above, Kuc said the Hadley Police Department petitioned the RMV to deem Dastoli an immediate threat and revoke his license.
