Durham Police released both dash and body camera footage from the final moments of a high-speed chase that killed an innocent driver.



Brooke Lyn Maynard, 24, was killed when the two suspects, who were driving the stolen car, rammed into her car.

The chase lasted for more than ten minutes and reached speeds of up to 75 miles per hour on city streets of Durham.

Police even pursued the stolen car driving the wrong way on Ramseur Street nearly halfway around the downtown loop.

Maynard worked at the Durham County Jail.

Durham Police said because of the violent carjacking, their policy allowed officers to pursue the stolen car.

No officers crashed or received injuries, but the video shows how remarkable it is that no one else was hurt or even killed.

Tomaris Parker, the driver of the stolen vehicle, was charged with second-degree murder, felony fleeing to elude causing death, felony death by motor vehicle, failure to stop for a red light, possession of a stolen vehicle and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Parker admitted to using crack and drinking alcohol before the crash, according to search warrants.

The passenger in the car, Deshon Carrington, was charged with possession of a stolen motor vehicle.
