Bronx Man Held For High-Speed Chase
Walter Turner, 31, of East 226th Street was driving alone in a westbound lane about 8:15 p.m. Saturday when a Westchester County police officer tried to pull him over for a broken tail light near Exit 4 at Central Park Avenue, county police spokesman Kieran O’Leary said.
Instead of stopping, Turner sped off and began weaving through traffic for about a mile before losing control of his car and rolling over near Exit 3 at Yonkers Avenue.
Turner was taken by ambulance to Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla and was treated for injuries that were not life-threatening.
No one else was injured in the single-vehicle crash.
Yonkers Police said they assisted with traffic control afterward.
Turner was charged with third-degree unlawful fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle, third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, driving while intoxicated and reckless driving.
He also was issued summonses for speeding, unsafe lane changes, an insufficient tail light and a seat belt violation.
