KERNERSVILLE — A Winston-Salem man is accused of leading Kernersville police and other law enforcement officers on a chase in eastern Forsyth County on Monday morning. A Kernersville Police Department officer pulled over a motorist at 9:20 a.m. at Justice Street near the intersection with Bodenhamer Street, but as the officer approached the car, it sped away, police said.

Officers pursued the car, which went onto Interstate 40 heading west. Officers broke off the pursuit for the safety of the public, and the car continued west on I-40 before going off the side of the highway into a ravine, where the driver ran into nearby woods, police said.
