On Friday morning (March 29th) at approximately 9:20 AM, the NC State Highway Patrol attempted to stop a 2011 Toyota Corolla traveling south on US 321 in Lincoln County for speeding. 

 

The driver of the vehicle, Justin Oneil Hinson, 28, of Lancaster, South Carolina, did not stop, and a vehicle chase was initiated.  The Corolla traveled south on US 321 for approximately five miles at a speed of up to 115 mph. The driver attempted to exit off onto US 321-business (mile marker 20), lost control, drove off the right side of the road, struck several trees, went down an embankment, and became entrapped in the vehicle which plowed into a group of trees.

Upon completion of the ongoing investigation, charges are pending.
