Police say Crouse was going 90 miles an hour in a work zone last Thursday near Exit 19 on the Northway. Troopers say he wouldn't pull over and a chase started.

Police used a spike strip near Exit 25 to try to stop Crouse.

He got off the exit at a high rate of speed and hit a car on the ramp, killing Joseph Turcotte.

Crouse was also charged with harassment for spitting on one of our photographers.
