Police from Currituck County, North Carolina were led on a wild car chase by a Virginia Beach man Saturday.  According to authorities, the chase started in Moyock and ended when the driver crashed his vehicle on Battlefield Boulevard in Chesapeake.


The man, Dimitric K. Evans, 28, fled when sherriff’s office deputies from the drug interdiction team tried to stop his Toyota.  Evans sped away along N.C. 168, at speeds reaching over 100 miles per hour.
