JUST IN: car being towed away from the scene here in @CarrboroTownGov where deputies tell me a suspect they were chasing wrecked. The chase started in @AlamanceNC and @OCNCSheriff helped with pursuit. As far as I know at this hour, the suspect still hasn’t been caught #abc11 pic.twitter.com/fQAMqQ2a9a— Josh Chapin (@JoshChapinABC11) March 30, 2021
The driver jumped from the car as deputies arrested a female passenger. The deputies and the woman were not injured.
Law enforcement officers are out with K-9 units looking for the driver who ran from the scene.
Also new video in shows @CarrboroPD k-9 deputies searching behind the scene of this crash. There’s still an urgent search for man who was in this car and took off. Woman in car was taken into custody #abc11 pic.twitter.com/GdtndQRR0S— Josh Chapin (@JoshChapinABC11) March 30, 2021
