A man driving a car reported stolen in Reston, Va., fled when cornered by police in the east Columbia Village of Kings Contrivance early yesterday morning, police said.

Police stopped a man driving a 1984 Honda Accord about 5: 30 a.m. yesterday for making an illegal left turn at the intersection of U.S. 1 and Corridor Road, said Sgt. Steven Keller of the Howard County Police Department. The man gave the officer a false name and then drove off.

Police chased the man through Anne Arundel County and then back into Howard County, Keller said. The man drove into Hugo Court in Kings Contrivance village and abandoned the car.

A search by a Maryland State Police helicopter, Howard County police dogs and a Prince George's County bloodhound failed to find the driver.
