On Sunday, August 06, 2017 at approximately 2:18 a.m. (0218 hours) the Merrimack Police Department attempted to stop a blue 2014 Toyota Camry in the area of Industrial Drive and Daniel Webster Highway. The vehicle was traveling northbound on Daniel Webster Highway without its lights on. While attempting to affect a traffic stop, the vehicle fled at an extremely high rate of speed causing the officer to lose sight of the vehicle; therefore, discontinuing.
