    BELVIDERE — Vermont police are looking for a 32-year-old man who fled on foot after leading troopers on a high-speed chase.

    Police attempted to stop a vehicle in Berkshire around 1 a.m. Sunday, but the driver sped off and attempted to strike the trooper’s cruiser.

    Officials said the driver, Shane Phillips of Johnson, drove up to 90 mph during the 15-mile chase that ended in Belvidere.

    Police said Phillips and his passenger, 37-year-old Raymond Earle of Wolcott, took off on foot. Earle was caught after being tracked over rugged terrain by police dogs, but Phillips remained at large Sunday morning.

    Both men were wanted on active warrants and now face multiple felony charges stemming from the chase.

    Police said Phillips has been wanted for 10 years on multiple aggravated assault charges.
