GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Investigators say a 29-year-old driver has been killed in a crash as he tried to speed away from a North Carolina trooper.

Authorities told media outlets that a trooper saw Demario Polk speeding while cutting through a parking lot in Greensboro late Friday night.

Troopers say Polk sped away when the officer tried to pull him over, then crashed into a ditch during a short chase.

Authorities say Polk was not wearing a seat belt and died at the scene.

The chase and crash are under investigation.
