Brunswick police responded to a vehicle crash Wednesday to find the driver had fled.

The crash was reported on River Road near the Pejepscot Fishing Park at 3:49 p.m. Deputy Chief Marc Hagan said a 1973 Dodge Charger had gone off the road and crashed into trees. Witnesses reported the vehicle “all over the road” prior to the crash.

Hagan said a canine team from Bath Police Department responded to conduct a track, but a witness later informed police the driver got into another vehicle.

Hagan said the registered owner has a Mechanic Falls address and has not returned phone calls from police.
