Woman Leads Deputies on 4 mph Chase After Leaving Scene of Accident

BROOKSVILLE – Just before 8:30 p.m. Fire Rescue responded to a two vehicle accident at Cortez Blvd, under the Suncoast Parkway overpass. While Sheriff’s Deputies were en route, one of the drivers fled the scene eastbound on Cortez Blvd. Deputies caught up with the vehicle as it approached the Cobb Road intersection, where they tried to conduct a traffic stop. The driver of the vehicle refused to stop and continued driving through the intersection at approximately 4 mph. Moments later the driver accelerated to speeds of 35 to 40 mph, forcing deputies to terminate the pursuit, per agency policy. Observing from a distance, deputies watched as the driver entered a ditch, regained control, and then crossed over into oncoming traffic. Fearing that the driver would place innocent people in jeopardy, a K9 deputy drove his SUV ahead of the suspect vehicle – allowing her to ram the rear of his vehicle. The tactic was successful and the suspect vehicle came to stop just east of Ponce De Leon Blvd.

The female driver, who appeared to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, was taken into custody. After a brief examination at the scene, the suspect was transported to a local hospital for treatment. A medical episode has not been ruled out, according to our sources.

Although there were injuries associated with the original accident, those occupants refused to be transported for treatment.

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating what led to the incident.

  • Sounds like another Deputy violated policies and procedures. According to the policy a Deputy will NEVER pull in front of a vehicle to stop a pursuit. Great police department we have in this county. Deputies thinking they could do whatever they want again!

  • I was a passenger in this accident. I still have a headache, sore neck, and sore back. This driver threatened to run us over when we checked to see if she was injured. She fled the scene! She was lucid enough to elude police, give false ID information, and avert her face from the camera. She was forced to stop with a stop strips and a police collision.

    She caused bodily injury, and property damage. She recklessly endangered all who encountered her. Her driving record is a testament to her arrogance and disregard for others. The car’s owner had a string of violations similar to hers.

    Jail would be good for her. At least the public will be safe for a while.
