BROCKTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A man from South Boston is facing several charges, after he was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run crash in Brockton that left one person seriously injured.
At around 3:30 p.m. on Friday, surrounding police departments were alerted to a gray Honda that had hit a pedestrian in Brockton and fled the scene.
A Braintree officer later spotted the vehicle, with a shattered windshield and front-end damage, driving on Route 37 and attempted to stop the driver.
BPD said the driver sped off and drove down a dead-end street, where he nearly struck another pedestrian. He then abruptly stopped the car and fled on foot, leaving a passenger inside the vehicle.
Responding K9 units searched the woods near where the suspect was last seen. According to Braintree Police, when he was located he "did not give himself up and continued to hide in a patch of thick brush and the K9 bit him during his apprehension."
The suspect, later identified as 28-year-old Kyle Pollard of South Boston, was treated for non-life threatening injuries. His passenger was questioned and subsequently released.
Pollard will face arraignment at a later date on charges of Failure to Stop for a Police Officer, Operating to Endanger, Operating Without a License, and Speeding.
