At about 3:50 a.m Cpl. Jake Justice saw a silver 2001 Honda Prelude that failed to dim its head- lights on Johnstonville Road. Justice tried to stop the car but it sped up and ran a stop sign before turning onto Rocky Creek Road. The car con- tinued traveling onto the dirt portion of Unionville Road when it finally stopped. The female pas- senger then opened the passenger side door and got out while the male driver drove off again. Justice followed the car to the intersection of Unionville and High Falls roads where the car took off westbound before turning around later and heading east- bound. During the chase, in which speeds exceeded 100 mph, the car drove across a ditch into a front yard before turning onto Parker Branch Road at which point Justice lost sight of the car. Justice then returned to Unionville Road where he met with the passenger who confirmed the driv- er's identity. Dispatchers later notified Justice that the car was found wrecked and abandoned on Possum Trot Run in Lamar County. However, Lamar County deputies were not able to locate the driver. The driver will also be charged with failure to dim headlights, speeding, failure to main- tain lane, reckless driving and failure to yield to blue lights.
