The police are searching for a motorist who managed to elude officers during a chase outside Prague on Monday, the spokesman for the force Tomáš Hulan has revealed. The driver was stopped by police at the northeast edge of the capital shortly after 1 PM. Instead of heeding the warning, he sped off in an oncoming lane, at points up to 200 kilometres per hour, the police said. The motorist then drove onto the R10 in the direction of Mladá Boleslav, managing to lose the police in pursuit. A police helicopter found the suspect vehicle abandoned near a forest two kiometres on. Police, complete with search dogs, were sent out but without success.
