High speeds and rural roads don’t usually mix.
Just ask the driver of this red C5 Corvette coupe.
His car was badly damaged and he was carried to Johnston County Jail on Sunday night after leading sheriff’s deputies on a high-speed chase that ended in a crash near Thanksgiving Fire Road in rural Johnston County, N.C., east of Raleigh.
About 9 p.m., the Corvette came whizzing past a Johnston County Sheriff’s deputy on NC Highway 42 at about 100 mph, leading to a chase that ended with the Corvette spinning out, crashing into a ditch, and rolling over. Still, the driver managed to flee from the scene on foot but was apprehended and taken into custody.
The condition of his passenger who was injured in the crash and had to be taken to a hospital remains unknown, according to a reporter for WRAL-TV.
Both air bags deployed, and the Corvette suffered extensive damage to the driver’s side and the front end, based on video from the scene.
