2 dead following high-speed chase with Mebane Police

Posted: Updated:
MEBANE, N.C. -

Two people died and one person was injured in a single-car accident early Sunday morning following a high-speed chase involving Mebane police officers.

The Mebane Police Department said officers attempted to initiate a vehicle stop for suspicion of impaired driving around 1:23 a.m. Sunday near the intersection of US 70 and Buckhorn Road when the suspect driver failed to stop and a pursuit ensued.

Officers lost sight of the vehicle several times over the course of the pursuit because of the high rate of speed at which the suspect vehicle was traveling.

Police say the vehicle was located near the US 70 and I-85 interchange where it had been involved in a single-car crash. Police say three people appeared to be pinned in the vehicle, and two of them were dead.

The third person, whose name was not made immediately available, was transported to Duke University Medical Center.

The officers involved in the pursuit have been placed on administrative duty pending the outcome of the administrative investigation.
