Her silver Honda Fit was first spotted headed east on I-20 near the Hamilton E. Holmes exit. Officers said they were unable to stop the vehicle, and it was soon spotted again in Sweet Auburn, where officers attempted a second traffic stop. The Honda “continued fleeing until it lost control and struck a fire hydrant,” according to police.
The Uber driver stayed with the vehicle and was not injured. Officers recovered a shotgun from her back seat, the spokesman said.
The suspected kidnapper has not been identified.
