A Lexington woman is in jail after crashing her car into a Lincoln County deputy’s car during a police pursuit through parts of two counties, police said.
April Wallace, 36, was being pursued about 4:30 p.m. by a Stanford officer who suspected her of shoplifting, according to a release from Kentucky State Police.
Police chased Wallace from Lincoln County to Garrard County. During the pursuit, Wallace hit a Lincoln County sheriff’s deputy’s vehicle with her car. Two Lincoln County deputies were treated for minor injuries.
The chase ended with Wallace losing control of her car and crashing into a ditch on U.S. 27 South.
Wallace was charged with evading police, reckless driving, criminal mischief, resisting arrest and two counts of wanton endangerment and assault. She was taken to the Lincoln County Detention Center.
