Crump is charged with Reckless Endangerment, Attempting to Elude a Police Officer, and Resisting Arrest. Crump is being held at the Lee County Jail.

Monday afternoon, Opelika Police Department responded to a high-speed chase on Interstate 85 Northbound, which began in Auburn.  Investigators say the suspect Crump refused to stop because she was driving a stolen vehicle.

OPD Officers pursued the vehicle into Chambers county, where Crump was eventually forced off the road, stopped, and arrested at a gas station. 

During the pursuit, an OPD officer was struck by the suspect’s vehicle. The officer received non-life-threatening injuries and was treated at the scene along Fob James Drive. During the chase, investigators say one officer fired their weapon, but nobody was injured.
