A Massachusetts man is facing a list of charges after running from police and leaving the scene of a serious accident.

According to Pembroke Police, on Saturday, just before 10:30 a.m., the Pembroke Police Department began receiving multiple 911 calls reporting a serious motor vehicle crash in the area of 682 School Street (Route 27).

Witnesses reported that one of the vehicles fled the area following the crash. Officers located the vehicle in the area of Pembroke High School and the operator failed to stop for the police. A motor vehicle pursuit ensued, which continued onto narrow, wooded trails. Officers reported that during the chase, the driver was reaching around in the vehicle, raising concerns that he may have a weapon. The driver initially eluded the police as the marked cruisers were blocked by a partially downed tree, which the suspect’s small car was able to fit under. The vehicle was located again a short time later on Bersani Circle. A perimeter was established, and a K-9 track ensued.

The suspect was eventually located in the basement of a small home nearby and placed under arrest. An inventory of the vehicle uncovered illegal narcotics.

The driver was identified as 40-year-old Jonathan M. Sarceno of Duxbury and he is being charged with Marked Lanes Violation, Speed Greater than Reasonable, Operating with a Revoked License (Subsequent Offense), Leaving the Scene of a Personal Injury Crash, Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle, Operating Under the influence of Drugs (3rd Offense), Fail to Stop for the Police, Possession Class C Drug, Possession Class E Drug, and Trespassing with a Motor Vehicle.
