Police find fugitive's car, but not fugitive

ALTON - Authorities recovered a fugitive's car over the weekend in Alton, but the fugitive himself, a man who allegedly hit a squad car while fleeing police officers, remained at large Monday.

On Saturday morning, authorities discovered the gray, Ford Crown Victoria that Hakeem L. Smith, 20, of the 900 block of West Delmar Avenue in Godfrey, allegedly was driving during the incident. It was parked on Ida Street. Ida is in the city's East End, a few blocks north of East Broadway off Main Street.

The pursuit began about 11 p.m. Thursday, when someone reported that Smith was driving in the Mexico neighborhood. Officers caught up with the Ford and attempted to pull it over, but Smith allegedly refused to stop. Police said he lost control of the car in the 900 block of Gold Street and drove into a yard.
