RICHARDSON, Texas (AP) - A North Texas woman has died after allegedly coming close to hitting a police officer who then fired a gunshot at her car.
Police in Richardson say the woman failed to pull over Monday morning, but continued to drive toward a highway. Sgt. Kevin Perlich tells Dallas television station WFAA that the driver nearly hit an officer, who then fired one round at her car as it drove away.
The woman crashed into a highway guard rail after a brief chase.
She was pronounced dead at an area hospital.
Authorities haven't said whether the woman died from the bullet or the crash.
