Greensboro, NC-- A Guilford County Deputy is okay after crashing his patrol car Thursday morning. The collision happened on Hicone Road in Greensboro.
Maj. Shepherd with the Sheriff's Office said the deputy was responding as backup to a traffic stop involving possible burglary suspects. As the officer was responding, he swerved to avoid a car that turned left in front of him. The Patrol car went down an embankment and hit a tree.
Shepherd said another deputy had stopped a car that fit the description of one seen after some burglaries in the county on Thursday morning.
A teenager home alone helped catch suspects after she ran out the back door during the break-in. Shepherd said the teenager didn't answer door after hearing a knock and shortly after one of the suspects used a crowbar to break-in.
A deputy stopped the car on Brightwood School Road and called for back up when he started having problems with the suspects in the car, Shepherd said.
In all, Sheriff BJ Barnes said they have connected the suspects to three burglaries and thefts in Greensboro on Thursday.
The suspects have been identified as: David Amir Zeigler of Greensboro and Vernita Antoinette Womack of Brown Summit.
The deputy who crashed his car was taken to the hospital for an evaluation. NC Highway Patrol is investigating the accident.
The investigation is ongoing into the burglaries.
