State police got their man, then lost him, when the driver accused of leading troopers on a 20-mile high-speed chase Monday near Annapolis checked out of the hospital where he was taken after the collision that ended the pursuit.
This is the first time in memory that state police have lost a suspect, spokesman Mike McKelvin said.
Anthony Lee Henson, 20, of the 5200 block of Audrey Ave. in Brooklyn Park is wanted on 10 charges in connection with the chase. Mr. McKelvin said Mr. Henson was not home Tuesday.
Mr. Henson was flown to at Prince George's Hospital Center in Cheverly for treatment of chest injuries after a head-on collision at Generals Highway and Riva Road. He was listed in fair condition Monday afternoon, but police said he later checked himself out.
"We were led to believe his injuries were somewhat life-threatening, so we thought he was going to be there for a while," Mr. McKelvin said. No one was guarding Mr. Henson, he said.
