DeWitt Township Police joined the pursuit and laid down spike strips.  The woman, driving a 2005 Dodge Caravan, ran over the strips but continued to drive a short ways before swerving and slammed into a DeWitt Township patrol car head on, injuring both herself and the officer inside.

The pursuit began at around 11am on Wednesday after DeKorte, who recognized the woman, pulled her over on an outstanding warrant.  The chase lasted 11 minutes.  DeKorte said the woman made a comment to officers that she wanted to die; that she was trying to kill herself.

Both her injuries and the DeWitt Township officer's injuries were serious but non life-threatening.
