Connecticut State Police: New Jersey man observed driving 120 mph on Route 8 in Bridgeport

Connecticut State Police says troopers observed a New Jersey man traveling 120 mph on Route 8 in Bridgeport Sunday at around 2 a.m.
According to authorities, Ethan Steier, of Warren, New Jersey, was driving a green BMW on Route 8 southbound in the area of Exit 2. This area has a posted speed limit of 55 mph, police say.
When troopers attempted to stop the BMW, the car accelerated and entered onto I-95 southbound, eluding troopers.
Minutes later, another trooper observed the same vehicle exiting I-95 southbound at Exit 18 in Westport and attempted to initiate a motor vehicle stop. In response, the BMW fled the area, again eluding troopers.
Patrol units in the area were advised that the same vehicle fled from Westport police and entered the Merritt Parkway, traveling northbound.
Shortly thereafter, troopers, with the assistance of Trumbull police, located the BMW operator, and the BMW parked on Waller Road in Bridgeport. Steier was subsequently taken into custody.
