FIRST ON 3: Video appears to show SUV that crashed with headlights on

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Home surveillance video appears to show a car involved in a crash that killed three people speeding down a residential street with its headlights on. A homeowner on Colonial Drive gave the video to WWAY. The man, who does not want to be identified, says the video was recorded Monday night when a SUV sped down the street followed by a Wilmington Police car.

WPD investigators have said an officer spotted the SUV driving with its headlights off just moments before the SUV crashed into a tree. The officer followed without activating his lights and sirens.

The surveillance video shows a darkened street suddenly illuminated by a vehicle’s headlights. About ten seconds after that car passes, a Wilmington Police cruiser drives by at what appears to be about the same speed.

Three people died in the crash. A fourth person survived. Investigators say none of the people in the car was wearing a seat belt.
