Opp Police arrested an Andalusia woman after she attempted to flee police.
OPD chief Mike McDonald said that an officer closed a 2003 Nissan Xterra traveling 92 mph in a 65 mph zone on Hwy. 84 west.
“The officer turned around on the Xterra to make a traffic stop,” McDonald said. “The Xterra then turned on Walding Road attempting to flee from the officer,” he said. “Once on Walding Road, the vehicle made a left turn on Hub Brown Road at a high rate of speed losing control of the vehicle and crashing into an embankment.”
McDonald identified the driver as 19-year-old Dashay Owens.
She was not injured.
McDonald said she was charged with fleeing or attempting to elude a law enforcement officer.
Owens was also issued several citations.
