Greenville Car Crash Kills One and Hospitalizes Another in North Carolina

December 16, 2019

GREENVILLE, NC- said that one person died in a crash that took place on Ford and 5thStreet over the weekend. Police spotted one of the vehicles prior to the crash. The vehicle was marked with false tags leading officers to attempt to pull the car over. The vehicle did not stop. Officers did not engage in a chase.* 

The vehicle continued on until it struck another vehicle trapping both drivers inside of their cars. 

The driver the police were pursuing, a 32-year-old man from Greenville, died at the scene of the accident. The other driver, a 34-year-old woman from Greenville, was stuck inside of the vehicle, and Fire and Rescue had to carry out an extrication operation to remove her from her damaged car.

Responders rushed the woman to the Vidant Medical Center for treatment. Reports indicate that the woman’s injuries are not considered life-threatening. 

Police are still investigating the cause of the crash.

One report completed by USA Today states that since 1979, more than 11,500 people died in crashes resulting from police chases. The victims are the fleeing drivers in most crashes, but bystanders are a close second. Police officers accounted for 139 of the total victims in these accidents.
