How did the crash happen?
A Mooresville police officer was following a 2004 Chevrolet pickup truck as it drove southeast on N.C. Highway 801. The Chevrolet truck went off the right side of the road, flipped over, and hit a utility pole. The driver, whose name was Davis, and the passenger, whose name was Humphries, were both found dead at the scene of the accident.
Mooresville police say that the chase began at 10:30 p.m. when the car was going 75 mph in a 45 mph zone on Oakridge Farm Highway. Officers tried to get the car to stop. The car went on Highway 801 in North Carolina. Mooresville cops said they saw drink cans being thrown out of the car on N.C. Highway 801. The cans being thrown out of the car were also caught on dash cam video.

The cans told the police that the car might be dangerous to them and other drivers. The driver lost control of the car during the chase, which led to the deadly crash. The drink cans that were thrown from the car during the chase were found. The drinks in the cans were found to be alcoholic. At the scene of the crash, the same kinds of cans were found. Based on what we know so far, drinking seems to have played a role. The N.C. State Highway Patrol is in charge of the probe and has asked Alcohol Law Enforcement for help.
