Amber Lynn Williams, a 19-year-old from Satellite Beach, led Brevard County Sheriff’s deputies on a high speed chase from Cape Canaveral to Orange County on State Road 528 beginning around 2:15 a.m. this morning.
The incident occurred when Williams allegedly clipped a pedestrian with her car mirror near the intersection of Filmore Avenue and southbound SR A1A in Cape Canaveral.
Williams then allegedly hit another vehicle causing substantial rear end damage and at some point turned onto Ocean Beach Boulevard in Cocoa Beach, headed north, and returned to SR A1A headed northbound before Brevard County Sheriff’s deputies caught up with her near the beginning of SR 528 in Port Canaveral.
Williams then slowed down and pulled over just east of the intersection of SR 3 and west bound SR 528 where a deputy dropped stop sticks in front of the vehicle’s tires.
However, the hit and run suspect then took off during the stop, running over the stop sticks.
BCSO deputies pursued the vehicle on SR 528 from Merritt Island as it headed west bound towards Cocoa, a second set of stop sticks were laid out near the intersection of I-95 and SR 528 which were also ran over by Williams.
FHP troopers then joined the pursuit along with a BCSO helicopter as her white Saturn approached the Orange County line. Speeds reached as high as 80 miles per hour and a piece of the Saturn broke off and hit one BCSO deputy’s cruiser.
The disabled car continued to throw out debris on westbound SR 528 before turning onto International Corporate Parkway Boulevard where the Saturn overturned.
Orange County Fire Rescue was called to the scene and Williams was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center.
