A man driving a Dodge Caravan that had been reported stolen in Virginia crashed yesterday morning into two vehicles on Interstate 95 near White Marsh after being chased by a Maryland Transportation Authority police officer, authorities said.
Officer Greg Day stopped the 1998 Dodge Caravan about 9:20 a.m. yesterday because its driver was not wearing a seat belt, police said.
A routine check of the vehicle revealed it had been stolen in Henrico County, Va., police said. The man drove off, and Day chased him north on I-95 to just past the White Marsh exit, police said.
The Caravan hit two vehicles, but no one was hurt, police said.
Police identified the driver of the Caravan as Muhammad S. Robinson, 20, of Newark, N.J. He was charged with auto theft, fleeing and eluding, assault and numerous traffic violations. He was being held yesterday at the Baltimore County Detention Center, police said.
