LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A police officer was injured and a woman was arrested after officers say she tried to flee from police.
Ronnisha Thompson is charged with fleeing from the scene of an accident and evading police.
Officers responded to a call about a hit and run accident in the 3500 block of West Broadway. A victim in that accident described a departing vehicle as a blue Chrysler 200 with a Maryland license plate.
Police stopped the vehicle as the driver tried to leave the scene. Once the vehicle was stopped, police say Thompson and another subject fled on foot from the scene between some houses. Officers pursued Thompson and the other person.
While in pursuit, one officer suffered a dislocated shoulder after he slipped on ice and fell.
Both Thompson and the other subject were located in the rear of a house in the 3500 block of West Kentucky St. and taken into custody.
