When the trooper tried to make the stop Robinson refused and kept speeding away.

The vehicle then exited onto Route 30 westbound into New Kent County. After turning onto a side road, the Camaro ran off the road, hit a pole and then a ditch. While the vehicle was still rolling, the driver jumped out and ran away on foot.

As the man fled the scene, the Camaro eventually ran into a house in the 5000 block of Barham Road.

State Police described Robinson as a black male in his late 30s with multiple face and neck tattoos.

No people were in the house when the car struck it.

The investigation remains ongoing. Anyone with information about Robinson’s whereabouts should contact VSP on a cell phone at #77 or by email at questions@vsp.virginia.gov or phone at 757-424-6800.
