Video shows driver, thrown from stolen car, fleeing police after crash in Maynard

MAYNARD, Mass. (WLNE) — The Maynard Police Department announced they’re seeking the public’s help finding a group of people they said crashed a stolen car and fled the scene early Wednesday morning.

According to police, at 3:30 a.m. on Wednesday, they received reports of people who were believed to be breaking into and stealing cars near Christmas Motors near Acton Street.

Authorities said when they arrived on the scene, they found multiple cars blocking the road and other cars leaving the area of Acton and Brown Streets. One car was observed driving down Route 27 and turning the wrong way onto Main Street.

When police attempted to stop it, they said the car took off at a high rate of speed and later crashed. CCTV obtained by ABC 6 News shows the accident where a car comes skidding and spinning down the street.

The driver can then be seen falling from his seat and running in between houses as police approach the car when it came to rest in the road.

Police said they had K-9s search the scene but due to the terrain and weather conditions, they were unable to locate them.

The cars that police said are connected to this group are as follows:

  • A white BMW X4, which was stolen from Sudbury and later found unoccupied in Worcester late Wednesday morning
  • A white Chrysler Pacifica, which was stolen from Leominster and later found unoccupied and recovered in Fitchburg late Wednesday morning
  • A gray Dodge Ram 4-door pickup truck, which was stolen from Maynard and later found unoccupied and recovered in Maynard
  • A gray Toyota Rav4, which was stolen from Leominster and has not been found at this time
  • A gray Toyota Avalon, which was stolen from Maynard and recovered in Maynard following motor vehicle crash

Police said they believe there were at least eight to 10 suspects and at least two other vehicles stolen from Leominster that remain missing at this time.

Anyone with information regarding the stolen cars or crash is asked to contact Sergeant Trista Manchuso or Detective Joe Morahan at 978-897-1011.
