Burlington, North Carolina Two Car Wreck Ends in Foot Race with Police for Hit & Run

Comments (0)

 While there is nothing completely "routine" about a car wreck, perhaps the last thing a person might expect is to see the driver of the other vehicle run off in a foot race with police.  That is exactly what happened in a recent event in Burlington, North Carolina (N.C.) .  Police in Burlington responded to a car accident and  subsequently got into foot chase with a suspect.   The incident happened  February 15, 2011, when  officers  were called to a car wreck on Tucker Street at Center Avenue.

Investigators said, Emillo Castillo Mavel, 30, was driving south on Tucker Street when he was hit by a car traveling east on Center Avenue. Police said the driver of the car that hit Mavel had run a stop sign, hit  Mavel's  Jetta in the right front fender , and caused the vehicle to be knocked off the roadway into a ditch.

It was determined that the driver of the other car, later identified as Terrance Evans, jumped from the driver's seat of the Toyota Camry he was driving after hitting the Jetta, and ran on foot into the Tucker Street Apartment Complex.

Burlington Officers pursued Evans and caught him without further incident. They charged Terrance Ralphelle Evans, 20 of Haw River, with  a stop sign violation,  Hit & Run Property Damage, No Operators License, Resist, Delay and Obstruct a Government Official. Evans was placed in the Alamance County Jail under a secured $1,000 bond.
