A stop sign violation in Nakina led to a high-speed, two-state chase late Monday that ended with the arrests of two Horry County women near Conway, officers on both sides of the border said Tuesday.
Columbus County Sheriff’s Deputy Paul Rockenboch began the pursuit after he witnessed a silver Kia run a stop sign while turning onto NC 905 in Nakina before 11 p.m. Monday, Maj. Bobby Worley said.
An Horry County Police Department report said the Kia was exceeding 130 miles per hour when Deputy Rockenboch lost sight of the car.
Horry County police picked up the chase after it crossed the state line.
Seewillow Dannell Jackson, 23, of North Myrtle Beach and Shatisha Janice Freeman Jackson, 32, of Atlantic Beach were each charged with failing to stop for blue lights and siren and unrelated charges of failing to appear in court. Seewillow Jackson was also charged with simple possession of marijuana.
