NEWTON, N.C. - A high-speed chase ended in a crash Wednesday near an elementary school in Newton, police said.
The crash happened along Startown Road, not far from Startown Elementary School.
Police said the chase started when two women got into an argument at the Catawba County Justice Center. They said when officers arrived, the women took off toward Highway 10.
Police said the car drove about five miles and reached speeds near 100 mph before flipping three times.
“This is something we never want to happen," Newton police Chief Vidal Sipe said. "Because it always ends up into something, somebody getting hurt.”
They are both expected to be OK.
Police said they are reviewing their chase policy to make sure it was followed.
