A Florida woman led several police agencies on a high-speed chase from Jasper County, SC, until she was forced off the road in Glynn County Thursday morning. She was injured but is recovering in a Jacksonville hospital.
According to GSP Trooper Eric Wilkes, the chase began shortly after 8:30 a.m., when officers tried to stop a speeding Lincoln Navigator, which was reported stolen in Florida.
The woman, identified as Sheri Brennan of Zyperhills, led multiple police agencies on a 90-mile chase southbound on I-95.
Wilkes said Brennan was driving up to 105 mph and was posing a danger as she swerved in and out of traffic, driving on the median and shoulder of the interstate. Deputies from Liberty, McIntosh and Glynn counties unsuccessfully tried using spike strips to stop the vehicle. Wilkes said he tried what’s called pit maneuvers three times to stop her.
The chase finally ended at mile marker 39 near Brunswick, when a trooper was able to force Brennan off the road using a pit maneuver off the road.
The woman who also did not have a driver’s license, told authorities she was driving to Florida to have dinner with family.
Brennan was flown by helicopter to Shands Jacksonville Medical Center in Jacksonville, where she is listed in stable condition.
