Hanson, MA, police said that a man who led them on a chase overnight was able to get into an officer's cruiser and prolong his crime spree.

The series of events began at 1 a.m. Thursday when officers said they saw a 2010 Chevy Malibu speeding and failing to stop at a stop sign. The driver, identified as Daniel Egan, refused to pull over and a pursuit ensued, WCVB TV reports.
