JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Sheriff Hans Miller told 9OYS a high-speed chase involving minors occurred Wednesday night in Onslow County.

Dangerous driving off Piney Green Road in Jacksonville caught the attention of Onslow County Sheriff’s deputies. The incident started just before 8 p.m. as a 2018 Nissan Rouge was clocked doing 82 mph in a 45 mph zone.

The driver refused to cooperate with law enforcement after attempts to pull over the vehicle failed. The vehicle was identified as stolen since June 1. Speed resulted in the car eventually crashing. There were minor injuries sustained to people in the car. Officials said there were six minors in the vehicle  

All of those involved have been identified. They are all under 18, so no names will be released. The driver is facing charges for speeding, failure to stop for blue lights, hit and run and carless and reckless driving, among other charges.

The investigation was still ongoing and additional charges are possible, Miller said.
