Motor vehicle crash: At 9:44 p.m., police on patrol on Main Street observed a 2000 Dodge Neon Sedan, later identified through dispatch by its license plate number to be owned by a Hillsborough resident. The vehicle was heading north on Main Street without its headlights on so police attempted to stop the vehicle but continued driving north onto Clinton Road. Police then observed a male driver leave the driver’s seat, open the passenger’s side door and leap from the vehicle. Police watched the man run towards the woods. The man, who had short dark hair, was wearing a blue t-shirt, black shorts, tan work boots. The vehicle was still in gear when abandoned and it continued to travel north eventually going off the road into the swamp. Police checked the vehicle for other occupants and did not observe anyone else in the vehicle. Sgt. Nick Hodgen and his K9, Fanto, of the Hillsborough Police Department arrived and began a trek without making contact because of the heavy forest and wet conditions. The vehicle was towed from the scene to the Peterborough Police Department’s impound lot, where it was secured pending application for a search warrant. According to the Antrim Police Department Tuesday, investigation is still ongoing and no arrests have been made at this time.
