MASSACHUSETTS — A woman with a baby in a car seat fled after a state trooper stopped her car early this morning in Brockton. The woman’s car and the trooper’s cruiser crashed on the highway, but nobody was seriously injured.
Lisa M. Allsopp, 31, of Plymouth, who was not injured, faces a number of charges, including operating to endanger and child endangerment, after the crash on Route 24 near the Brockton-Avon line, police said.
The baby did not appear to have been injured but was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton for observation. Trooper Brian Galvin was taken to the same hospital for treatment of minor injuries, police said.
Sergeant Robert Bousquet, a State Police spokesman, said Galvin stopped Allsopp in Brockton for failing to stop for a red light at about 4 a.m. today. She fled onto Route 24 southbound, with Galvin pursuing her.
Allsopp’s car went out of control and both her car and the cruiser went off the left shoulder and collided with the Jersey barrier, Bousquet said. Allsopp is to be arraigned today in Brockton District Court.
