A woman who slammed her car into someone’s front porch while fleeing lawmen has been placed on probation for a year.
The woman, Jessica Hope Ramsey, 27, entered guilty pleas before Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to the charge of reckless endangerment. She was directed to serve five days of a one-year sentence and to make restitution.
The chase that ended in the crash began when she pulled into the path of an oncoming deputy in her Chevrolet Suburban.
“I had to hit my brakes to keep from hitting the vehicle,” said Sheriff’s Lt. Jason Walker, noting he turned around in a driveway and started to pursue the vehicle down Yager Road. “She accelerated away at a high rate of speed.”
The deputy said Ramsey turned into a drive at Yager Apartments.
“I saw a large dust cloud,” he reported. “I found the vehicle had struck the porch of an apartment which had three occupants inside.”
The deputy said the impact was so hard that a picture frame and lamp were damaged inside the apartment.
Ramsey was caught and arrested and admitted to being the driver.
“She said she lost control of the vehicle while turning into the parking lot,” Walker noted.
