    77 year old woman leads police on 4 hour wild car chase Port Orange, FL

    http://www.floridatoday.com/article/...30008/-1/crime

    "PORT ORANGE — A 77-year-old woman led officers through a wild 4-hour ride around Port Orange when she drove so dangerously through the street that one pedestrian jumped into a lake to avoid being hit.
    Veronica Hollifield crashed into two vehicles, leaving the scene of both accidents, then vandalized a church lobby, tearing a painting off the wall and knocking over chairs.

    A policeman ran alongside her car, opened the door and grab Hollifield’s left arm. But police say she put the car in reverse, revved the engine and rammed into the officer’s squad car before roaring off. She slammed into another police cruiser moments later.

    She eventually crashed into a tree. It took more than five people to get her onto a stretcher so she could be hospitalized under the state’s Baker Act."

    How fast was she going that the police officer was able to run along side the car?
