Police have arrested a suspected bank robber who they say was involved in a crash on Interstate 440 that caused major traffic delays Friday afternoon in Raleigh.

Jamari Shalick Wilson, 22, faces multiple charges, including robbery with a dangerous weapon, police said in a news release. He also faces felony speeding to elude arrest and other traffic violations.

Raleigh officers responded about 12:30 p.m. to a call of an armed robbery at Capital Bank at 6511 Falls of Neuse Road, according to a news release from police.

Officers said they spotted Wilson’s vehicle and tried to stop him on Falls of Neuse Road. He drove away and crashed into another car on westbound I-440 near Glenwood Avenue, police said.

The suspect and the driver of the other car were taken to WakeMed with non-life-threatening injuries, according to police.
