A chaotic scene unfolded in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on Friday in which a woman was flung into the air after being struck by a car during a police chase.
Video showed 57-year-old Juanita Gray being struck and going airborne.
The incident came after police had been chasing Gray’s son, 38-year-old JaJuan Burley.
Fort Wayne police said that the incident began at about 10 a.m. when police sought to pull over a vehicle that did not comply, according to WPTA-TV.
According to U.K.’s Daily Mail, the chase continued for about 20 minutes until it reached the street where Gray lives.
Police said that during a brief stop, an “item exchange occurred between the suspect and his mother,” who had emerged from the house.
The vehicle then began to exit the property. At that point, the woman was struck by the vehicle as she attempted to return inside the house.
