A man who fled police at a high rate of speed and then ran away on foot after crashing his vehicle is still wanted by the Janesville Police Department, according to a release.

Janesville police were involved in a drug-related investigation on the south side of Janesville around 4:34 p.m. when they stopped a vehicle on Center Avenue near Nicolet Street, officials said. The vehicle was a green Ford Expedition, and it fled north at a high rate of speed on Center Avenue.

The officer began to pursue the Ford, but immediately ended the chase on Center Avenue near West State Street due to public safety, according to the release. At one point, the suspect vehicle was seen crossing over the opposite lane of traffic.

The vehicle tried to go over the center median of Monterey Bridge, which disabled the tires, police said. The vehicle stopped as it crashed into the bridge dividers on Center Avenue near Riverside Street.

The driver, Shay S. Dooley, 27, fled on foot, police said. Officers have searched the area and have not found Dooley.

Dooley faces possible charges of hit-and-run, felony fleeing, recklessly endangering safety, obstructing, possession of THC and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is also wanted on several warrants, including felony fleeing, recklessly endangering safety, felony bail jumping, second-offense operating while intoxicated and possession of THC.

Police ask anyone with information on Dooley’s whereabouts to contact their local police department of the Janesville Area Crime Stoppers at 608-756-3636.
