QUITMAN, GA (WALB) – A south Georgia woman led officers on a high-speed chase through two counties Thursday afternoon.

It started a little after 1 o'clock Thursday, when a Quitman Police officer stopped and tried to arrest her for traffic violations.

Troopers say the woman sped off, dragging the officer 40 to 50 feet, and then hit another police car.

Police and troopers chased the woman all the way to Adel at speeds topping 100 miles per hour.

The chase ended when the woman ran a stop sign, at the intersection of Georgia 76 and Georgia 7, and crashed into two vehicles.

She was seriously injured, and one of the other drivers suffered minor injuries. 

We don't know the name of the suspect yet.
