CHENANGO, N.Y. (AP) - State police say a New Jersey man led them on a chase that topped 120 mph on an upstate New York highway before crashing.

Trooper say they spotted 24-year-old Trevon Clement of Newark traveling at nearly 100 mph around 9:40 p.m. on New Year’s Day in the southbound lanes of Interstate 81 in the Broome County town of Barker, just north of Binghamton.

Police say Clement fled from troopers, hitting almost 127 mph as he drove on state Route 17’s westbound lanes, where he crashed into a guide rail in the neighboring town of Chenango.

Clement was charged with unlawfully fleeing a police officer and numerous other traffic violations.

He was released from the Broome County Jail after posting bail. It couldn’t be determined if he has a lawyer for his pending court appearance.
