Police charge woman with filing false report in fatal chase


GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Police in North Carolina have charged a woman with filing a false report of a stolen car which triggered a chase and crash that killed five people.

The News & Record of Greensboro reports an investigator said Erica Leann Robinson reported the car stolen last September. A Guilford County sheriff’s deputy spotted the car and tried to stop it.

Police said the 2003 Acura was traveling at an estimated 130 mph (209 kph) when it ran a stop light and crashed into a 2012 Kia. Killed were 29-year-old Alyssa Mackenzie Bolick and 32-year-old Stephanie Louise Warshauer. Three people inside the Acura were killed as well.

Assistant District Attorney Howard Neumann said Robinson is not being charged in the deaths because her actions were “far too distant” from the actual crash.
