ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, N.C. — A crash involving four vehicles on U.S. 220 led troopers to a man wanted on outstanding warrants of felony charges, according to Highway Patrol.

At about 6:45 a.m. Wednesday, troopers responded to the crash on U.S. 220, near N.C. 704, in Rockingham County.

Troopers say a disabled Ford SUV was abandoned in the southbound lane of the highway.

An approaching Chevrolet SUV was rear-ended by a Kia passenger car. The crash caused the Chevrolet to slam into the disabled Ford.

A Chevrolet pickup then crashed into the Kia.

All vehicles came to a stop in the left lane, but no one was injured.
