— State Capitol Police are searching for a driver they say hit several parked vehicles near North Carolina State University's campus before fleeing on foot early Monday.

An officer tried to pull over a driver for speeding on Varsity Drive, near Avent Ferry Road, around 1:45 a.m., police said. The driver accelerated, and his vehicle struck three parked vehicles.

Police said the driver abandoned the wrecked car and ran into a nearby apartment complex.

Police were still looking for the driver.

    Why can't they just run the plates on the car and see who it belongs to? He left the wrecked car he was driving at the scene. It has to be liscenced and or registered to someone. If there were no plates, can't they check the VIN and see what comes up from that?

    mfmoore2001 - unless ( and this would be a good reason he didn't want to pull over ) the car is stolen.

    Maybe the police officer did not want to catch him. Fear can be a bad thing

    He can't get too far, the police have his name from the car's registration!

    Why is State Capitol Police cruising around Avent Ferry Road at 1:30am? Not exactly a lot of State Government property around there to patrol.

    Did the cop chase him? Seems after a wreak like that, he wouldnt be running so fast. Probably drunk too. I am amazed how many 'perps' outrun the cops. Slow down on the donuts fellas!! LOL

    That is one heck of a wreck!
