On May 17, 2021 New York State Police arrested David N. Arthur, age 23 of Corona, NY for the misdemeanors of Unlawfully Fleeing an Officer in a Motor Vehicle and Reckless Driving.
A trooper from the Traffic Incident Management (TIM) unit was monitoring traffic in a work zone on Interstate 88 in the Town of Worcester when he observed a vehicle traveling eastbound and at a high rate of speed. The trooper attempted to initiate a traffic stop but the vehicle operator, who was later identified as Arthur failed to comply.
The vehicle exited at exit 19, failed to yield at the intersection with Hollenbeck Road, went airborne and struck a guide rail but then reentered Interstate 88 in the eastbound direction. Arthur ultimately lost control of his vehicle while in the grass off I-88 and was arrested. No injuries were reported.
Arthur was processed at SP Oneonta then released on appearance tickets to the Town of Worcester court. He’s scheduled to appear on May 25, 2021.
