Suspect ditches car, jumps onto moving train during Charlotte police chase

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Charlotte-Mecklenburg police were involved in a chase Wednesday afternoon on northbound I-85 in west Charlotte.

A chopper from our sister station WSOC flew over the chase, where a black Honda was seen weaving in and out of traffic on the interstate.

The Honda was seen from Chopper 9 taking the Freedom Drive exit and speeding down the road and then turned into a parking lot and sped through it.

At one point, the suspected driver of the Honda jumped out of the car, ran toward some train tracks and then jumped onto a moving train in order to get away.

The suspect ended getting off of the moving train and ran into some woods in the Westover Hills neighborhood. Police could be seen from Chopper 9 searching the area for the suspect near Skyview Road.

WSOC is contacting police to find out what why officers are chasing the vehicle.
