State police chased a fleeing Baltimore man about 20 miles on Interstate 83 in the predawn hours Friday morning, with speeds reaching 120 miles per hour before he crashed and was taken into custody.
State police said Bernard Daniel Johnson Jr., 51, was driving a 2002 Chrysler Town & Country minivan with a stolen registration plate.
Around 1:20 a.m., troopers spotted the man heading south around the Leaders Heights Exit and attempted to conduct a traffic stop, police said.
With "multiple troopers" pursuing, the man continued driving, even after running over a set of spikes laid in the highway to slow the vehicle, police said.
Police said Johnson continued to drive about 80 miles per hour after his front tire hit the spikes. He drove into Maryland and attempted to exit the highway, but he was unable to negotiate a turn. He crashed into an embankment and rolled the vehicle about six miles into Maryland, police said.
He attempted to run from the minivan, but troopers apprehended him and took him into custody, police said.
He was taken to Central Booking for arraignment.
