State Police report a Dorchester woman faces a variety of charges after getting her econobox to accelerate past 100 m.p.h. on the turnpike today before flipping it over on the exit ramp to Rte. 9 in Framingham.
State Police say Carla Joffre Pena, 20, will be formally charged with refusal to stop for police, operating to be endanger, plate violation and speeding after she gets out of the Worcester hospital to which she was transported by helicopter for treatment of the injuries she complained about after getting out of the car "under her own power."
State Police say a trooper began trying to stop her in Millbury, after several motorists reported her driving wicked fast and weaving in and out of traffic in a Corolla with no plates around 5 p.m.
State Police say the reason the car had no plates is because, on Oct. 11, she was arrested on the turnpike out in Ludlow for driving the car with a stolen plate. She was charged with various offenses and the car was towed to a lot in Springfield - from which she managed to spring the car today, before flooring it.
