Woman Dead After Car Chase With Highway Patrol In Concord

A 22-year-old woman has died after a chase with North Carolina troopers ended in a fiery wreck.

Multiple media outlets report that Jasmine Wright pronounced dead at the scene of the crash Friday night in Concord.

The Highway Patrol says Wright was the passenger in a car that troopers tried to pull over on Interstate 485 in Mecklenburg County.

Troopers say they began chasing Keyone Joel after clocking his speed at 82 mph. Authorities say he drove at least 100 mph while they chased him.

Joel turned onto another road and hit an incline. The car overturned, then hit a ditch and a tree. He was flown to Carolinas Medical Center and listed in critical condition.

Troopers didn't believe alcohol was a factor in the crash. No charges have been filed.
