(Northampton, MA) – A Saturday car crash in Northampton has resulted in kidnapping charges for a Springfield man. Northampton Police say Reyes Morales-Gonzalez was arrested Saturday morning when his car crashed on Pleasant Street. The accident was triggered by a woman who allegedly forced the car off the road in an attempt to escape from being held against her will. Morales-Gonzalez was arraigned on mutliple charges, including OUI and kidnapping.
They were arrested as part of a yearlong FBI investigation into people trying to travel to Syria to join Islamic State.
The race goes on during a pause in the trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who was convicted earlier this month of the 2013 bombing.
