Driver remains on loose after pursuit in Manchester, Goffstown
Manchester police first tried to stop the driver about noon on Second Street for a motor vehicle violation, Manchester Police Lt. Todd Boucher said.
When the officer tried to approach the green Honda Accord, the driver allegedly took off toward Boynton Street where, at one point, he stopped and backed into the cruiser, Boucher said. The cruiser sustained minor damage and the pursuit was called off.
Police continued to patrol the area when residents of the West Side apartment complex on Agnes Street flagged them down and reported a car speeding through the area.
Police located the car on the former rail trail used by hikers and bikers that connects Manchester with Goffstown, Boucher said. The driver had smashed through the rock barrier, but became stuck and abandoned the vehicle, he said.
Goffstown police picked up the pursuit when they learned the driver allegedly stole a vehicle there. Residents of that town reported a man going through cars until he apparently found one unlocked with the keys inside, police said.
Goffstown and Manchester police had yet to identify the suspect by late afternoon.
