Fleeing Robber Causes Fatal Crash

A Raleigh man was killed after police say a fleeing robbery suspect crashed into his car in Wilmington, North Carolina. Deputies with the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call about an armed robbery at a Walmart in Porters Neck at about 10 a.m. Sunday, the Sheriff’s Office said on Facebook.

The suspect’s vehicle was then stopped about 10 miles away from the store after 911 calls reported the car was moving “erratically and at a high rate of speed,” according to the Sheriff’s Office.

During the stop, the suspect rammed a deputy’s car and then took off, the Sheriff’s Office said. Deputies chased the suspect, who the sheriff’s office said ran two red lights before crashing into another car. The other driver, 51-year-old Sean Alan Evans of Raleigh, was thrown from his Jeep and police say he died at the scene, according to WECT. The suspect, 39-year-old Thomas Willoughby, was arrested on Sunday, according to… The News & Observer
