SALEM, N.H. (AP) - A 23-year-old driver has been airlifted to a hospital after failing to stop for a New Hampshire police officer and striking a tree at high speed.

Salem police say the driver passed an officer on Main Street doing in excess of 90 mph Sunday at about 3 a.m.

The officer activated her emergency lights, but the driver didn’t stop. The officer soon came upon the crash scene and the driver, who had been ejected from the car.
