MANCHESTER, NH – A family was being treated for injuries sustained in a crash Monday night which State Police say was caused by a Manchester man traveling at more than 100 mph in a stolen BMW. He now faces multiple charges from state and local police.

On July 27, 2020, at approximately 7:10 p.m. Troopers from the New Hampshire State Police Troop B Barracks in Bedford were dispatched to a serious motor vehicle crash on Interstate 93 south in Manchester. 

Troopers determined that a 2020 BMW X3 had collided with a 2017 Subaru Outback causing the Subaru to exit the roadway and roll over multiple times. Several witnesses reported that the driver of the BMW had been traveling in excess of 100 mph at the time of the crash and fled from the scene on foot into the woods along the west side of the highway.

The Subaru was being operated by Jonathan Quinn, 41, of Brookline, Mass., with a front seat passenger identified as  Stephanie Schneider. 39. of Brookline, Mass.

According to police Quinn and Schneider were traveling with their infant daughter. All three were transported to the Elliot Hospital in Manchester. Schneider sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries and Quinn and their infant daughter sustained minor injuries. A pet dog was also traveling in this vehicle and was transported to a local veterinary hospital with life-threatening injuries.

After witnesses provided a description of the driver who fled from the BMW, State Troopers and Officers from both the Londonderry and Manchester Police Departments canvassed the area with the assistance of a State Police K9. A short time later a subject matching the description was located by a perimeter unit in the surrounding area. This subject was confirmed to be the driver of the BMW and was uninjured. He was identified as Patrick Giberson, 36, of Manchester.
