Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY (WBTV) - North Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating a deadly high-speed chase in Rowan County Saturday.

China Grove Police said investigators released a suspect and vehicle description for a string of break-ins. Saturday, someone observed a similar vehicle and called police. An officer attempted to pull over the Chevrolet Avalanche at Main and Church Streets at Highway 152, but the truck took off and led the officer on a chase.

Officers from China Grove and Landis joined in on the attempt to stop the truck.

The driver turned right onto Millbridge Road, cut across a soybean field while speeding and flipped the truck. It rolled several times, throwing the driver about 40 feet. He was killed.

Investigators said the man did not have any identification on him, so they don't yet know who he is. The truck was registered to a Mooresville address, but they believe it was stolen.

NC Highway Patrol is investigating.
