Police: Suspect who led trooper on chase crashes into pole, dies
New Jersey state police say a driver who led a trooper on a chase was killed when his car hit a utility pole Friday.
The pursuit began around 9 p.m. in Bridgeton on Route 49.
News 12 is told the trooper spotted a vehicle that matched a description for one that hit a Bridgeton police officer earlier that night. The trooper called off the chase after losing sight of the vehicle.
The suspect, 21-year-old Devonte Brooks, of Millville, was later found to have crashed into the pole.
