    Police: Driver Steals Car and Flees After Serious Crash at Mall of New Hampshire
    Manchester Police

    Police are looking for a New Hampshire man who allegedly crashed into a car in a mall parking lot, injuring his own passenger and another driver, and then stole another car in order to flee the scene.

    Authorities said 45-year-old Keon Mercer of Manchester was driving a Nissan Versa at a high speed when he hit a Toyota Camry driven by a 67-year-old Londonderry woman outside the Mall of New Hampshire in Manchester on Monday. When the driver of a Ford Focus stopped to help, police said Mercer got into that car and drove off.

    A 27-year-old Manchester woman who was in Mercer's car suffered serious injuries, according to police. The nature of those injuries was not immediately known. The Camry driver's injuries are considered non-life-threatening. Both victims were taken to a nearby hospital.

    Mercer is also accused of shoplifting from J.C. Penney before the crash.
