Around 3 am this morning an officer attempted to stop a vehicle in Boone County. The vehicle did not stop for the officer and was fleeing. A short time later the vehicle crashed into a pole. The driver fled on foot. He fled in the Fairgrounds Park/Prairie Fields area. (Business 20/Fairgrounds area) Officers are searching the area. They have brought in a K-9 to assist in the search for the suspect.
Update: The vehicle is a rental car from Iowa. Sounds like the suspect in question wants to turn himself in now and is at Harlem and N Second st in Machesney park.
