A woman in North Carolina has been charged with filing a false police report of a stolen vehicle and causing a chase that led to the deaths of five people.

Erica Leann Robinson filed a false police report, claiming her 2003 Acura stolen back in September.

A Guilford County sheriff’s deputy saw the vehicle, ran the plates, and tried to pull it over on September 30th.

However, as soon as he turned his lights on, the car fled, and authorities said the car was driving at roughly 130 mph when it ran a stop light and crashed into a Kia, WNCN reported.

Alyssa Mackenzie Bolick, 29, and 32-year-old Stephanie Louise Warshauer were both in the Kia died in the crash.

The occupants of the Acura, Deshon Lee Manuel, 42; Theresa Monique Kingcade, 34; and Bruce Wayne Hunt, 40 were also killed.

Bolick’s dog was also in the Kia and was the only survivor of the collision.

Assistant District Attorney Howard Neumann said Robinson is not being charged in the killings because her actions were “too distant” from the actual crash.

“I know everybody wants to pin something on somebody, but we have to stay within the confines of the law,” Neumann added.

She has been charged with a misdemeanor, which carries a maximum of 60 days behind bars.

The car’s registered owner s Robinson’s mother, and it’s not apparent how the people who crashed the vehicle ended up with it.

“We don’t know the transaction that happened between the car and the people that had it,” Detective R Goad said.

Two of those killed in the Acura, Manuel and Kingcade, had arrest warrants at the time of their deaths.
