Chamblee woman indicted in hit-and-run on Smyrna officer

A 23-year-old Chamblee woman has been indicted on charges she seriously injured an on-duty Smyrna police motorcycle officer in a 2012 traffic accident.

Jennifer Karen Cook was on South Cobb Drive on May 8, 2012, when she made a left turn into Cpl. Eugene Crawford’s motorcycle and failed to stop, the indictment states.

Cook is charged with serious injury by vehicle and hit and run, both felonies, and reckless driving, a misdemeanor. If convicted of all charges, she could be sentenced to up to 21 years in prison and fined $1,000, said Kim Isaza, spokeswoman for the Cobb County District Attorney’s Office.

Crawford, 54, is a 30-year veteran of the Smyrna police department.

No arraignment date has been set for Cook, who is free on $25,000 bond.
