ATLANTA — A car that police said was running from a traffic stop crashed into several poles and vehicles along Cheshire Bridge Road early Sunday morning.
One of those vehicles belongs to Jessica Davis. She said the car smashed into her idling Audi.
Her air bags deployed, and she told Channel 2's Rikki Klaus that her shoulder felt as if it might explode.
“These two suspects jumped out of the car and ran down the street like track stars. They weren’t hurt or anything. They took off running,” Davis said.
Davis said she had been celebrating her friend's birthday when the crash happened.
She said she never saw it coming.
“All of it was surreal. I couldn’t believe it," she said. “I just felt like my shoulder was going to explode. That car had to be going really fast," she said.
Davis said she watched two men get away.
“These two suspects jumped out of the car and ran down the street like track stars. They weren’t hurt or anything. They took off running," she said.
Atlanta police said they searched the area with no luck.
Davis is worried about the men being on the loose. She fears they may do the same to someone else. She's also worried about the cost of medical bills and a new car.
“My whole body is hurting from this accident, and at the end of the day, I wasn’t doing anything but sitting in my car, and I have to pay for all these damages,” she said.
