PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) - A police chase ended with an injured deputy and a fatal wreck on Friday afternoon. 

On Friday, Jan. 29 at approximately 2:17 p.m. CST, a Lee County Sheriff’s Deputy on patrol in the Smiths Station area encountered a pickup truck occupied by two subjects that displayed a license plate registered to another vehicle.

The deputy conducted a traffic stop on Lee Road 443 near the intersection of Lee Road 236.

A period of time elapsed while a check on the occupants was conducted, which revealed an active warrant for parole violation on the 41-year-old female driver, later identified as Angela Hiatt of Lee County. 

As the deputy attempted to take her into custody, she drove away. A pursuit was initiated for a short distance down Lee Road 443 to a point where the deputy again attempted to take the female into custody.

She then drove her vehicle at the deputy, who discharged his firearm toward her vehicle. She then struck the deputy’s patrol vehicle, left the roadway and traveled into a nearby residence. 

Hiatt was pronounced dead at the scene and found to have sustained multiple gunshot wounds, according to the coroner. The 18-year-old male occupant of the vehicle was not injured.

Sheriff Jay Jones has requested the Alabama State Bureau of Investigation to respond to the scene to begin an investigation.

The deputy sheriff involved has been taken to the East Alabama Medical Center in Opelika for examination and treatment. Sheriff Jones said the deputy's hand was injured and is in a sling.
