COLUMBUS, Ohio -

A woman is facing nearly a dozen charges after allegedly leading police on a chase early Thanksgiving.

According to Bexley police, the chase began when an officer attempted to stop a vehicle for running a red light in the area of 202 N. Cassady Ave. shortly after 2 a.m. on Nov. 28.

Bexley police said the driver did not initially stop for the police officer, and eventually pulled into a driveway, where the officer attempted to contact the driver.

According to a police report, the driver, identified as 25-year-old Sally E. Kurgis, refused to open her door or roll down the vehicle window to speak to officers.

Instead, police said, she backed up the vehicle and rammed into a police officer's cruiser three times.  

A chase ensued and continued from Cassady Avenue to the intersection of Winner Avenue and Broad Street.

A Columbus police officer assisted and was able to get the driver stopped.

Kurgis was taken to an area hospital for treatment was later released. Warrants have been issued for her arrest.

Kurgis is charged with OVI, a felony count of felonious assault, failure to stop after a crash, failure to comply, resisting a traffic enforcement official, reckless operation, and other traffic offenses.

The officer was not injured in the crash.
