YORK — State police arrested a Portland man Friday night after a chase on the Maine Turnpike from York to Biddeford.
State police said David Logugune, 21, was charged with a number of offenses and was taken to the York County Jail. Police said Logugune does not have a driver's license and bail conditions from prior charges prohibit him from driving.
Police spokesman Steve McCausland said the pursuit began in York on the turnpike when a trooper saw Logugune's car with its muffler dragging on the road causing sparks. After stopping his car, Logugune then took off in the northbound lanes reaching speeds of more than 100 mph, he said. Troopers used spike mats 20 miles later in Biddeford and deflated the fleeing car's tires, bringing the chase to an end, according to McCausland.
Police said Logugune's car struck a second vehicle as the chase ended and the driver of the second car was treated for minor injuries. Northbound traffic on the turnpike was disrupted for a time as troopers investigated the crash, which took place about 8 p.m.
State police on Saturday did not provide information on Logugune’s bail or court date status.
