“Suddenly while the two officers were still in front of her vehicle she just started accelerating and almost killed both of the police officers,” Walpole Police Chief John Carmichael said.

As the woman tried to escape the officers in her vehicle, a Good Samaritan attempted to stop the chase by crashing their pickup truck head-on into her vehicle.

Neither officer, nor the Good Samaritan and woman, were injured.

The woman was taken into custody.
