Worth County -- A state trooper was injured in an afternoon chase involving several law enforcement agencies Tuesday.

61-year-old Mildred Ann Smith is charged with motor vehicle theft and aggravated assault of a police officer. Investigators say she stole a van from her employer in Mitchell County, and refused to stop.

She led deputies from Highway 19 to Highway 112 North.

Smith eventually crashed just South of the intersection of Highway 133 and Highway 112 in Worth County, but not before hitting a trooper's car three times.

"She had actually traveled down into the ditch. Traveled back onto the road and struck the patrol car on the driver side. She went across the road and hit the patrol car on the passenger side and than struck her in the rear end," says Corporal David Ellis of the Georgia State Patrol.

That trooper suffered minor injuries to her arm and shoulder. Mildred Hill Smith was taken to Southwest Georgia Hospital for a mental evaluation.
