STAMFORD, Conn. —A New York man is facing a host of criminal charges after allegedly leading police on a car chase through two states that caused at least a pair of car accidents, according to the Stamford Advocate.

Eric Henry, 29, of Mount Vernon, was arrested Wednesday by New York State troopers, according to the Stamford Advocate, which reported that Henry entered New York after being chased by police from Stamford.

Stamford officers tried to approach Henry about 1:30 p.m. after receiving reports about a black Acura involved in drug activity at the Stamford train station, according to the Stamford Advocate.

Henry is accused of speeding away from Stamford officers, running a red light and colliding with a car at Atlantic and South State streets, according to the Stamford Advocate, which reported that he continued to flee police and later crashed a second time in Pelham Manor, N.Y.

Henry faces a count of criminal possession of a controlled substance in New York and will face several vehicle charges in Connecticut, according to the Stamford Advocate.
