    A New Hampshire man suspected of stealing a vehicle out of Boston crashed into a parked car following a police pursuit in Manchester, according to officials.

    Manchester Police say an officer observed a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed on Merrimack Street Friday at 1:00 a.m.

    The officer pursued, but when the vehicle began operating erratically through several neighborhoods, the pursuit was called off.

    Police later observed the vehicle crash into a parked vehicle in the area of 321 Wilson St. and another vehicle in at 325 Hall St. before it finally stopped.

    The driver was identified as Kevin Gearhart, 49, of Manchester. He was arrested for unauthorized use of a propelled vehicle, disobeying a police officer and reckless operation.
