BROOKS COUNTY, GA (WALB) –A Thomasville woman remains hospitalized Friday night after a high-speed chase that also injured a police officer and two innocent drivers.

42-year old Lisa Davis was pulled over in Quitman for running a stop sign Thursday.

When Officer Sophia James discovered the license was suspended, Davis took off and Officer James was dragged by the van.  James was treated at a hospital.

"She was released but had a lot of road rash a lot of bruising," said Quitman Police Chief Wesley Ross.

Davis crashed into two vehicles in Cook County, sideswiping a Dodge Ram driven by 51-year old Ricky Gandy on Highway 76. She then crashed into a Grand Marquis driven by 73-year-old Dora Lollis. Lollis is still in the hospital.
