Franklin Police Chief Rick Oliva said it all started after a suspect was being interviewed at a nearby store for a fraud complaint.
“He fled from the officer, ran into his vehicle and fled the scene," Oliva said.
Police followed the suspect to a road leading into the Wal-Mart where he struck this van while crossing the center line at high speeds.
"He was probably doing at least 45-50 miles per hour," said Anderson.
Judy was driving the van.
"I was making a turn into Wal-Mart and a guy came flying from behind, I never saw him coming,” she said. “He took the front end of my car and smashed it all out. Then he bounced over that way and he was way over here."
“The driver fled the vehicle and ran and jumped into a retaining pond near the scene," Oliva added.
