FREMONT — Authorities called off the search for a Brentwood man who allegedly fled on foot after crashing a black Volkswagen GTI when he failed to stop for police Tuesday afternoon.
State and local police spent two hours looking for the driver, identified as 19-year-old Alec Blazek, but gave up in hopes he’ll turn himself in.
The search for Blazek began just before 1:30 p.m. when police said he crashed a car on Beede Hill Road and took off.
Police Chief Jon Twiss said he was patrolling westbound on Beede Hill Road just before 1:30 p.m. when a car passed him traveling at about 70 mph.
Twiss said the car passed another car on a double yellow line. Twiss quickly turned around and attempted to stop the vehicle, but he said it continued a short distance before the driver crashed in the area of 203 Beede Hill Road.
“He accelerated when I turned around and that was the last I saw of him,” Twiss said.
No one was hurt in the crash, but the vehicle was damaged and had to be towed from the scene.
After the crash, Twiss said Blazek and one passenger fled into the woods. The passenger, identified as Casey McNamara, 20, of Fremont, was arrested in the area of Blue Fish Drive on an electronic bench warrant. Twiss said the warrant was related to a drug charge.
Blazek remained on the run throughout the afternoon, but Twiss said he is known to police and not believed to be dangerous. He was out on bail at the time of the incident, but Twiss couldn’t confirm the nature of the criminal case.
State police dogs were brought in to help with the search.
Fremont police were assisted by state police and other local police agencies.
Twiss said Blazek was last spotted in the area of Route 107 in Raymond near the athletic fields.
Two other young men who were passengers in the vehicle remained at the scene of the crash and were interviewed by police. They declined to comment to a New Hampshire Union Leader reporter.
“We don’t like newspapers,” one of the men said.
