In a bizarre incident in Madison, Tennessee, a 47-year-old woman found herself in a series of serious legal troubles after allegedly fleeing the scene of a crash in a Metro Nashville Police Department vehicle. The incident took place early Saturday morning, and it has left many puzzled by the audacity of the suspect’s actions.
The drama unfolded when a Crime Scene Investigations (CSI) officer stumbled upon a three-vehicle crash at the intersection of Old Hickory Boulevard and Anthony Street on December 2, 2023. What should have been a routine investigation quickly escalated into a high-speed chase.
As first responders attended to the injured parties involved in the crash, the suspect, identified as Bridget Johnson, decided to make a shocking move. She reportedly entered the front of the CSI van and sped away from the scene, leaving everyone in disbelief.
The pursuit that followed saw additional CSI officers attempting to catch up with Johnson as she raced through the streets of Madison. The chase finally came to an end at the intersection of Coreland Drive and Berkley Drive, but not before raising a lot of questions.
According to the Metro Nashville Police Department, Bridget Johnson is believed to have caused the initial crash. Reports suggest that her vehicle was traveling on Prentiss Drive when it veered off the road, crossed the railroad tracks, became airborne, and ultimately landed on Old Hickory Boulevard, colliding with other vehicles in the process.
The charges against Johnson are extensive and include leaving the scene of a crash, felony evading, motor vehicle theft, failure to file a report of a crash, and drug paraphernalia possession.
