Troopers say the woman was driving more than 70 mph on outbound East Independence Boulevard.

The series of events began shortly after 2 a.m., troopers say. The N.C. Highway Patrol was using radars to clock motorists on East Independence Boulevard near Eastway Drive, as part of the “No Need 2 Speed” campaign that started Monday.

Troopers say radar indicated one outbound motorist was driving more than 75 mph in a 50 mph zone, and troopers began a pursuit.

The driver of the car would not stop, authorities say, and the pursuit continued past Sharon Amity and Idlewild roads. Troopers say the driver turned off Independence Boulevard onto Wallace Lane. The driver’s car then slammed into a telephone pole on Dorn Circle.

The driver, a woman whose name has not been released, had to be freed from the wreckage. She was taken by Medic to Carolinas Medical Center.

Troopers say charges are pending.
