Posted June 12, 2013

— A woman was arrested and a man is at large Wednesday after a brief chase ended in a three-car crash on Duke Street at Horton Road, according to the Durham County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities said a deputy saw what appeared to be a drug deal in the parking lot of Northgate Mall around 7 p.m. After he stopped the 2000 Lincoln Town Car, the driver fled the scene. 

She drove north on Duke Street before crashing into two vehicles. No one was injured. 

Both the driver and a male passenger fled on foot, but she was caught a short time later. The passenger is not in custody. 

Her name and the exact charges were not released.
