Drug-Fueled High Speed Corvette Police Chase Ends In No Small Crash6
A Zebulon, North Carolina man has been arrested following a high-speed police chase. The suspect, Kevin Lamons Winston, age 41, flew past a Johnson County deputy sheriff in a red Corvette just as the official was responding to a house call received by the department.
Winston was driving a 1998 Chevrolet Corvette and attempted to flee the deputy sheriff, at times traveling at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour. The pursuit ended when Winston crashed his Chevy into a ditch and attempted to flee on foot before being detained by deputies.
Based on accident photos, it appears that Winston lost control of his vehicle and slid into the ditch sideways, with the front half of the vehicle being crunched in the process. The C5 Corvette’s body appears mangled, with the door skins broken off, roof partially twisted and visible cracking in the quarter panels.
This was a substantial crash that not only endangered Winston and the deputies involved, but also a female passenger in the Corvette, who was transported to a local hospital with injuries.
Unfortunately for Winston, he is not only a prolific law breaker when behind the wheel, but also in general – as he was arrested for three outstanding warrants, including a criminal cocaine charge. The list of Winston’s driving offenses is even more substantial, including fleeing to elude arrest, speeding, driving while impaired, reckless driving, driving on a revoked license, resisting arrest, assault on a government official and identity theft. He was later tested and blew a 0.08 on the Breathalyzer.
By the sound of things, things aren’t looking good for this Corvette corralling criminal.

He should also be charged for those terrible wheels.
It’s North Carolina,Bubba!
This man is a coveted sufferer of toxic shame, unfortunately he will never identify this and stop carrying his and his parents’ shame. This man was most likely abandoned at an early age, perhaps only emotionally abandoned, and subsequently started living in a toxic shame snowball-lifestyle. An old Dodge Daytona could be a much more suitable vehicle for this man considering the legal fee mountain that lie ahead of him. I hope the lady-passenger gets better! Who knew such menial criminals of the lowest level were behind the wheel of such a fine, fun and great vehicle!! What the heck!!
Can’t fix stupid…
Sad thing is,they keep breeding. Like Rudy Giuliani marrying his cousin.
Thanks for driving up insurance premiums for all other Corvette drivers who live much quieter lives, Winston! What a moron!
