TRAFFIC ALERT: Route 5 West Springfield Closed

A section of Route 5 in West Springfield has been closed after a distraught veteran, allegedly with PTSD led police on a brief chase  

The man gave up and is in police custody.  But, police say he left four pipe bombs inside the vehicle.  

Police are currently in the process of disarming the devices.  But it could be sometime before the road is back open.
