A woman was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center after leading authorities on a high-speed pursuit that began in Lebanon and ended when her vehicle flipped off the road in Rutherford County.
Lebanon Police Chief Scott Bowen said his department received a call from Cash Express at 224 West Main Street, regarding Christina Mathieson, 36, of College Grove in Williamson County, had an outstanding warrant in Williamson County for a check violation.
Bowen said Officers Jason Bringhurst and Lt. Brent Willett made contact with Mathieson at the Cash Express. When Mathieson refused to exit her vehicle, Bowen said she put her 2005 Toyota Camry in reverse and dragged Bringhurst across the parking lot.
Upon exiting the parking lot, Bowen said she almost hit Willett as well.
Bringhurst and Willett returned to their patrol cars and pursued Mathieson, who Bowen said was driving through yards to avoid the officers.Mathieson then traveled westbound on State Route 840 with officers of the Lebanon Police Department and Wilson County Sheriffs Department deputies in pursuit. Speeds on the roadway reportedly reached in excess of 100 mph.
