    A wanted driver who fled a Palisades Interstate Parkway police stop in New Jersey late last year was captured by New York State troopers in the Hudson Valley after doing it again, authorities said. Vincent Gambrell, 56, of New Windsor in Orange County had initially sped off when Officer Thomas Shine tried to stop his Ford Taurus on the New Jersey side of the northbound parkway shortly before midnight last Dec. 17, Det. Sgt. First Class Raymond E. Walter said.

Working with investigators at the Rockland Intelligence Center, detectives identified Gambrel as the driver, who was also wanted on warrants out of Clifton, NJ and New York State, records show.
