Report of Woman Forced From Vehicle Leads To Chase & Crash

ASHEBORO N.C. – A woman is facing a slew of charges after police say she fled from them after they tried to pull her vehicle over to investigate a report of a female being forced out of a vehicle.

In a press release this week the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office says that on June 7, 2022, a deputy was in the area of Caraway Mtn. Rd, near Asheboro, conducting an investigation, when a driver approached to report seeing a female being forced out of a vehicle on Caraway Mtn. Road.

Deputies located that female, who was observed exiting the vehicle earlier on Caraway Mtn. Rd., and transported her to an area hospital for evaluation. A deputy located the vehicle in question near the intersection of Caraway Mtn. and Old County Farm and attempted to pull over the driver to investigate.

According to police the driver refused to stop and a chase ensued ending when the driver lost control of the vehicle and crashed on Hanner Hill Road. The Sheriff’s Office identified the driver as Aubrey Thornhill and say she was transported by EMS to an area hospital for medical evaluation.

Following the investigation, charges were sought from the magistrate for Felony Flee to Elude, Speeding, Open Container, Driving Left of Center, Failure to Maintain Lane Control, No Operators License, Injury to Personal Property and Failure to Stop at a Stop Sign. The magistrate found probable cause and issued the warrants.

Earlier this week on July 11th, 2022, Thornhill was located by Greensboro Police Department and was arrested and transported to the Guilford County Detention Center where the magistrate issued a written promise to appear on September 7, 2022, in Randolph County District Court.
