A driver who took police on a chase on I-87 following a traffic stop in Westchester ended up crashing the vehicle and was allegedly caught with drugs.

The incident took place around 11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 14 in the Village of Ardsley, when State Police attempted to stop a vehicle driven by  Cory L. Lee, 41, of Woodbridge, Virginia on I-87 for traffic violations said Trooper Tara L. McCormick.

While troopers approached the vehicle, Lee fled the scene and a pursuit ensued.

A short time later, the vehicle took Exit 7, and lost control on the ramp, striking the guardrails. The driver fled on foot. Troopers conducted a search of the vehicle, an Infinity G37, and located 1.2 grams of crack cocaine, McCormick said.
