High-speed chase leads to crash, arrest

MARTIN COUNTY - A man wanted in Georgia is arrested in Martin County after sending troopers on a high-speed chase Thursday.

Officials say a trooper pulled over Nadir Quadir, 32, of Everretts, for speeding on U.S.  64 in Martin County, between Jamesville and Williamston.

When the trooper screened Quadir's license, it showed that he was wanted in Georgia.  Before the trooper could arrest Quadir, he drove off in his SUV.

Troopers chased after the SUV and speeds reached 110 miles per hour.  The chase lasted about 10 miles.  At one point spike strips were deployed, which blew out the SUV's tires.  But the SUV didn't stop and continued to drive away at speeds up to 90 miles per hour.

The SUV attempted to pass an 18-wheeler but instead, hit the back of it. The SUV crashed and Quadir ran off. 

Troopers later caught him in a wooded area nearby after a short chase.

Quadir is charged with felony speed to elude, driving 110 m.p.h. in a 55 m.p.h. zone, driving while license suspended and delay/obstruct an officer.

He is being held at the Bertie/Martin Regional Jail on a $50,000 bond.

A passenger in the SUV jumped out right before the chase began.  That passenger is still at large.
