VIDEO: Stolen Georgia Police Car Leads to Pursuit and Crash

Cobb County (Ga.) police arrested a woman after they say she stole one of their police cars and led officers on a chase down Interstate 75.

A department spokesperson told WSB-TV the officers responded to a suspicious female armed at the intersection of Windy Hill Road at I-75 around 4 p.m. Sunday. At some point during the stop, the woman, identified as Emmerli Wilcoxson, managed to get into the police car and take off.

"We saw two police cars coming. They were going at a high rate of speed. We tried to get out of the way," said William Michael Jones, who witnessed the crash. "I told my wife they're gonna wreck. They're going too fast."

Police say Wilcoxson was driving the car at speeds of more than 100 mph southbound on the interstate.

Police say Wilcoxson suffered severe head trauma in the crash and was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.

A Cobb County officer suffered minor injuries and was treated and released from the hospital.
