Posted July 26
Warsaw, N.C. — Troopers with the North Carolina State Highway Patrol ended a high-speed chase on Interstate 40 in Duplin County Tuesday morning by crashing a fleeing vehicle near the Pender County line.
Maj. Tim Jones with the Duplin County Sheriff's Office said officers saw two men in a rental car throwing items out of the vehicle near Warsaw. Authorities chased the vehicle through the county before troopers stopped it just short of the Pender County line by using a precision immobilization technique, or PIT, maneuver. At times, the fleeing vehicle reached speeds of 100 mph.
No one was injured in the chase, and both suspects were arrested. The driver did not have a license and was on probation for a drug charge.
Neither man was identified.
