GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. – A high-speed police chase in Guilford County ended with a driver rolling over and crashing into a home’s front yard.

The chase started at about 7 p.m. Monday when police saw a car headed east on West Gate City Boulevard in Greensboro that they believed was involved in a robbery.

Police said the robbery was at a MetroPCS cellphone store at 3718 West Gate City Boulevard and involved one suspect with a handgun entering and stealing money. A second suspect was allegedly waiting outside in a car.

Police said officers tried pulling the car over and the driver took off, resulting in a chase that went on for miles on Interstate 40.

The suspect eventually got off the freeway at Mount Hope Church Road and rolled over near Stewart Mill Road, according to police.

After the car rolled over, a Greensboro police unit crashed into it, according to police. Nobody was hurt in either wreck, but two people inside the suspect’s car were taken into custody.
