NC soldier crashes into parked car in high-speed chase after I-40 driver hits 130 mph, officials say

BURLINGTON, NC (WGHP/WNCN) — A North Carolina State Highway Patrol officer ran into a parked car during a high-speed car chase in Burlington Saturday morning, according to the NC State Highway Patrol.

State police officers attempted to stop a car on Interstate 40 East around 2 a.m. after driving the driver at 99 miles per hour in a 65-mile zone. The driver failed to stop as lights and sirens were deployed and a high-speed chase began.

Officials said the suspect was reaching speeds of 130 miles per hour.

The driver exited I-40 and led the Soldiers down US 70 and eventually down Bland Boulevard, where the Soldiers used a Precision Immobilization Technique (PIT maneuver) to break the pursuit.

The PIT maneuver resulted in both the officer and the suspect’s car going off the road and crashing into a parked car. The suspect fled the scene on foot, but was arrested a short time later.

Nobody was injured in the crash.

Photos from the scene showed the trooper’s cruiser atop a run over Scion XB, which the trooper hit.

Police officers said the suspect has been identified as Keon-Zae Jhazie Herbin, 18, of Burlington and he is being charged with the following charges:

  • Flee crime to avoid arrest
  • possession of a stolen motor vehicle
  • Driving with a disability
  • Carrying a concealed pistol
  • Accelerate at 130 mph in a 65 mph zone
  • Negligent and reckless endangerment
  • Violation of stop sign
  • red light violation
  • Headlight dimming error
  • Drive left of center

Herbin got out of the Alamance County jail on $2,000 bail just after 10 a.m. NC soldier crashes into parked car in high-speed chase after I-40 driver hits 130 mph, officials say
