MEBANE — Authorities say two people have died after the car they were in crashed after Mebane Police tried to pull it over.

Investigators said an officer tried to stop a car on U.S. 70 in Mebane early Sunday morning because the driver appeared to be impaired. But the car sped away.

Officers lost sight of the car, but founded it wrecked off the side of the road a short time later. Authorities say three men were pinned inside. Two died and a third was taken to the hospital. Their names have not been released.

The Highway Patrol is investigating the wreck.
