Police looking for green Mustang

SALISBURY — Salisbury police are looking for the driver of a green Ford Mustang convertible that led an officer on a high-speed chase early Thursday morning.
According to the Salisbury Police Department, the vehicle reached speeds faster than 100 miles per hour in a pursuit that raced through downtown Salisbury to Interstate 85.
Officer R. S. Ruble reported seeing the 1990s-model car on South Main Street doing “burnouts,” or spinning its wheels and beginning to lose traction as it traveled across the south lane.
Ruble followed the vehicle, caught up with it on Klumac Road and signaled it to stop with police lights. The car reportedly sped up in response, and the officer pursued.
The chase continued on Fisher, Ellis and Caldwell streets and Lincolnton Road before reaching Jake Alexander Boulevard, where the vehicle turned onto Julian Road and headed south on I-85. It took the Lane Street exit in Kannapolis but then drove back onto the interstate.
Traffic got more congested as the chase reached Concord city limits, and the officer reported losing sight of the car around 3:15 a.m. at I-85 exit 58. Police are investigating.
