Moment Ohio cop shoots woman through windshield while clinging on to hood of car after she mowed him down in wild police chase

An Ohio officer shot a woman through the windshield as she clung to the roof of her car after mowing him down during a wild police chase caught on camera.

Police identified the driver as Holly Lynn Graham, 32, of Columbus, after the dramatic incident in the city’s north parking lot Wednesday afternoon.

The chaos was captured from multiple angles on the bodycams of several Columbus PD sergeants on the scene.

We see a stolen 2015 Toyota Camry backing away from the surrounding police as an officer lays spike strips across the parking lot exit in an attempt to trap the SUV.

One of the sergeants approaches the vehicle as it is reversing, but Graham suddenly accelerates towards him and rams him, sending him flying on top of the hood.

He opens fire through the windshield several times as he clings to the vehicle as it drives away, causing him to fall to the ground.

His colleagues chase the SUV, yelling “get out of the car” as they point their weapons at the getaway driver.

The same incident is shown from the perspective of the rammed officer via his bodycam, showing the vehicle hitting him with shocking force.

Graham speeds away, leaving the sergeant gasping for breath next to the rubble where her tires were torn along the road.

You can hear the officers shouting “officer down” and “he got away!” amid the carnage.

The officer points his gun at her and repeatedly shouts “lay down, put your hands behind your back” as she sinks to the ground.

Columbus police said the incident happened Wednesday around 3:23 p.m. when officers were dispatched to the 1700 block of East Dublin Granville Road for a report of a stolen vehicle in the area.

The owner said their car was taken from Lancaster, Ohio and they followed it to East Dublin Granville Road.

Officers attempted to stop the car in the area, but Graham fled to the Huntley Square shopping center and began “driving erratically,” the department said.

“While the vehicle was in the parking lot, it began to reverse before abruptly moving forward and striking a Columbus Police Sergeant,” the department said.

“The vehicle continued through the parking lot with the sergeant on the hood of the vehicle. The sergeant discharged his firearm several times, striking the driver.”

It wasn’t until Graham reached the on-ramp of Interstate 71 North and collided head-on with two vehicles that police were able to apprehend her.

Officers attempted to help her before she was transported to Riverside Hospital in “serious condition,” the department said.

The occupants of the two vehicles the suspect crashed into were treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Meanwhile, the stricken sergeant was transported to Grant Hospital in stable condition.

The sergeant has been identified as a 10-year veteran of the Columbus Division of Police, but his name has not been released under Marsy’s Law.
