At approximately 3:15 a.m. this morning, a Halifax District patrol member was patrolling Forest Hills Parkway when he observed a 2002 Mazda Protege that appeared mechanically unsafe.  The vehicle was emitting an excessive amount of smoke.  The officer attempted to stop the vehicle but the driver would not pull over.  The vehicle was travelling under the speed limit and the officer continued to follow it to Amaranth Crescent.  The suspect vehicle collided with a parked car, a parked truck and a fire hydrant before coming to a stop against a power pole.  The suspect driver fled the vehicle.  The HRP K9 Unit was called in but the suspect was not located.
 
The investigation is continuing.  The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, possibly bald or shaved head, and may have sustained multiple cuts and abrasions while evading police.
 
Investigators are asking anyone with information to contact them.  People can contact any RCMP office, Halifax Regional Police or Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS ( 8477 ), texting TIP202 + your message to “CRIMES” (274637) or by Secure Web Tips at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca .
