Police say a Winston-Salem woman led them on a car chase through the western part of the city following a traffic stop for a burned out headlight. During the chase, the woman crashed into an iron gate at Livingstone College.
Salisbury Police charged Faye Collins Evans, 50, of the 3900 block of Logan Lane, with misdemeanor vandalism, felony possession of cocaine and an outstanding warrant for felony assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.
The incident occurred Wednesday around 8 p.m. when an officer stopped a silver Kia Sorrento near Brenner and Overman avenues that had no headlights turned on, a report said. The officer asked the driver, later identified as Evans, to see her license and registration.
She told the officer she’d lost her license, but had her registration. The officer checked her information and determined she had an outstanding warrant for her arrest from Forsyth County for assault. When the officer informed Evans of the warrant, she hesitated briefly and put the car in gear.
