ALBERTVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Albertville Police chased a woman through parts of the city and downtown Tuesday for nearly 30 minutes Tuesday morning. The chase finally ended when the woman’s car flipped into a field.

The chase started between 9:30 and 9:45 a.m.  Albertville Police tried to pull her over in the city limits, but she took off, according to Assistant Police Chief Jamie Smith.  They chased her, and did a loop through downtown.

The woman continued driving out of town, and officers tried to do a maneuver to stop her, but it didn’t work — one of the patrol cars was damaged.  She kept going and ended up on Nixon Chapel Road, where she lost control in a curve and flipped several times, landing in a field shortly after 10 a.m.

The woman was alert and talking after the accident.  She was taken to Marshall Medical Center South for treatment.

Police say they’re still not sure why the woman wouldn’t pull over in the first place.  They are investigating further.
