Albany -- A Leesburg drug informant, injured in a police chase last year, may be suing the city of Leesburg.

50 year old Kay Parr was a police informant who got into the car with drug suspects at McDonald's in Leesburg in November. They crashed on Old Leesburg Road while being chased by Leesburg Police.

 Her lawyer, Bob Beauchamp, says police were negligent and did not follow department chase policies.

They've notified the city they are contemplating a lawsuit. Leesburg City Attorney Bert Gregory said "which is something that is required to be done under the Georgia Code when someone wants to serve a claim against a municipality. We received that earlier this month, and we have 30 days in which to make a response. And that's where we are in the process."

Police said they chased the car because they were afraid Parr had been kidnapped.
