REHOBOTH, Mass. (AP) — Police say a Massachusetts man led police on a chase that ended when he crashed near the border of Rhode Island and was seriously injured.

Police say the driver kept going toward Seekonk and was found crashed against a tree just over the Seekonk town line.

Police say the driver was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Police say he faces several charges, including failure to stop and operating to endanger.

They identified the driver as 33-year-old Jonathan Cruz of Rehoboth. It was not immediately clear whether he has an attorney.
