Man Crashes His SUV And Flees On Foot, Leaving His Daughter In The Vehicle
(Saco, Maine) - A Biddeford, Maine man faces several charges after a pursuit and crash Wednesday night on the Maine Turnpike.
Maine State Police say 25 year old Michael Messier passed a State Trooper at 111-miles per hour Wednesday night, then refused to stop.
He lost control of his S.U.V at the Saco exit and crashed. Messier fled on foot into nearby woods, leaving his 2-and-a-half year old daughter strapped in her car seat. She was not injured.
State , Saco and Biddeford Police searched for Messier but did not locate him.
6 hours later, he was spotted along the turnpike near the crash scene. He was taken into custody, treated for mild hypothermia and brought to the York County Jail.
He faces charges of eluding an officer and violating his bail conditions. Further charges are possible.
Messier had been released from the jail earlier this week after serving time on a domestic violence charge.
