Shocking footage of a police chase in Oklahoma shows a woman ramming the vehicle she's driving into a police cruiser.
The incident happened on Nov. 6 in the town of Sand Springs, ABC News reports. Police were informed of a stolen vehicle, which was being tracked by the company that owns it, according to a press release.
When the car was found, the driver would not pull over, resulting in a police chase that ended near a local elementary school.
Patrol officer Matt Stacy got out of his patrol car when the suspect tried to flee the scene, according to Sand Springs Deputy Chief of Police Mike Carter. Stacy reportedly intended to set up a tire spike to disable the car.
“It was approximately three seconds after standing up outside his vehicle that the suspect rammed his patrol unit,” Carter said in a press release, according to ABC News. “When the officer saw that the suspect was coming at him, he abandoned the plan to retrieve the tire spikes and instead drew his weapon, not knowing of the suspect’s intention to hurt or kill him.”
Footage recorded by police cameras shows the intense and terrifying moment of impact, followed by Stacy pulling out his gun and firing at the stolen car.
The officer suffered minor injuries. He was taken to a nearby hospital after the incident and has since been released.
The suspect has been identified as Stacy Ann Bunsey, 41. According to Carter, she “had to be tasered and removed from the vehicle.”
Bunsey now faces four felony counts -- assaulting a police officer, eluding a police officer, driving under the influence, and possession of a stolen vehicle -- plus a misdemeanor count of resisting arrest. She is currently being held in the Tulsa County Jail on $79,500 bond.
