Five people have been reported killed in a vehicle crash after a high-speed pursuit led to the collision of a stolen 2003 silver Acura and a Kia Optima. The incident started when a Guilford County Sheriff’s Deputy observed the 2003 silver Acura driving in a suspicious manner.
The Deputy ran the plates against the Nation Crime Information Center database and discovered the vehicle had been reported stolen from a nearby apartment complex parking lot at E. Meadowview Rd two weeks prior. The Deputy attempted to pull the 2003 silver Acura over travelling southbound on Battleground Ave. at approximately 11:27 p.m but it quickly began to accelerate to a high rate of speed. The driver of the fleeing vehicle ran through a red light at the intersection of Battleground Ave and New Garden Rd and collided with the Kia Optima. All occupants of both cars were killed.
Greensboro police have identified the driver and victims of both cars. Stephanie Louise Warshauer, 32, and Alyssa Mackenzie Bolick, 29, were in the Kia Optima that was struck by the fleeing criminals. The driver of the stolen Acura was Deshon Lee Manuel, 42, and his two passengers Theresa Monique Kingcade, 34, and Bruce Wayne Hunt, 40, were all local natives. The accident remains under investigation by Greensboro Police Department’s Crash Reconstruction Unit.
