The State Highway Patrol told ABC11 that a trooper going northbound on I-95 spotted two motorcycles travelling around 95 miles per hour around 7:40 p.m.
The trooper gave chase and one of the motorcyclists, driving without a license plate, refused to stop. The other exited on an off-ramp.
Around milemarker 74, the motorcyclist slid, hit the median, and then struck the guardrail. The driver, 18-year-old Deion Montell Thompson, of Fayetteville, was killed.
The driver of the second motorcycle has not been located. That driver's helmet had a "mohawk" style on it.
Traffic was shutdown for about an hour in the area.
