A Rockland man crashed his vehicle Friday evening while attempting to elude state police on Route 1 in Northport.

Trooper Benjamin Sweeney attempted to stop Adam Moulton, 28, of Rockland for criminal speed Friday, May 4, at 10:45 p.m. Instead of stopping, Moulton increased his speed and attempted to elude the traffic stop, according to police.

Sweeney pursued Moulton for about four miles before Moulton lost control of his vehicle and went off the road. He was not injured in the crash and was transported to Waldo County Jail.

Moulton was charged with eluding an officer, operating under the influence, driving to endanger, operating after suspension and criminal speed.
