A high speed chase for a wanted man ended when his SUV crashed into the back of a tractor trailer.
Troopers say it happened on U.S. 64 in Martin County, between Jamesville and Williamston.
Trooper Haywood Singleton had stopped the car near the Washington County line around 8:30 a.m. for speeding. After running the man's license, the trooper discovered he was wanted in Georgia and had a suspended license here. When Singleton returned to the vehicle to arrest the man, the SUV took off.
Speeds reached 110 miles per hour in the ten mile chase. Stopsticks were deployed in Jamesville and two of the SUV's tires were blown out, but the chase continued at some 90 miles per hour speeds.
When the SUV tried to pass an 18-wheeler, it hit the big rig's rear end and the vehicle crashed. The driver then ran, but was caught after a short chase into some woods.
Nadir Quadir of Everetts is charged with felony speed to elude, driving 110 m.p.h. in a 55 m.p.h. zone, driving while license suspended and delay/obstruct an officer.
The 32-year-old man is the Bertie/Martin Regional Jail on a $50,000 bond.
