Moments later the vehicle crashed on the F.E.Everett Turnpike in Nashua between exits 4 & 5. The driver of the vehicle was identified as Jonathan J. Calvin, Age 31, from Nashua NH.

It was reported that a female good Samaritan stopped to assist Calvin, and upon doing so Calvin assaulted the female and then stabbed her. Calvin stole the female's vehicle and fled the scene. Shortly thereafter Calvin was located by Officers from the Nashua Police Department and a pursuit was initiated.

Calvin reversed directions and subsequently traveled northbound on the F.E. Everett Turnpike back into New Hampshire where he caused an eight, (8) vehicle collision in the immediate area of Exit 4 in Nashua. Calvin was ejected from his vehicle and fought with officers from the Nashua Police Department and Troopers from the NH State Police as they attempted to take him into custody.

Calvin faces multiple charges from both the Nashua and New Hampshire State Police Departments. Information regarding the inner-city robbery should be obtained directly from the Nashua Police Department.

Of the eight vehicles involved in the collision, three, (3) individuals were transported to area hospitals for treatment for non-life threatening injuries.
