The driver who went on a demolition derby in a stolen RV — with one of her dogs hanging out of the smashed windshield during the high-speed police chase — is now facing charges, including driving under the influence.
The woman was not immediately identified but described as Hispanic and in her 40s. She is accused of sending cops on a chase through San Fernando Valley Tuesday evening in a stolen RV — and with two dogs on her lap as she smashed into at least six cars and trees, ABC 7 reported.
Midway through the half-hour pursuit, which reached speeds of up to 60 mph, one of the dogs jumped out of the RV through the shattered windshield.
The second dog was still in the vehicle when the woman crashed into a Hyundai sedan in Tarzana, then bolted from the RV on foot with the pooch running behind her.
Cops tackled the woman and placed her under arrest. She is expected to be charged with DUI, felony evading and felony hit-and-run.
Both dogs were recovered. The one at the crash scene appeared to be injured, leaving bloody paw prints behind as it sat next to the woman. They are being checked out by veterinarians.
Two people inside the Hyundai were injured and another driver who was hit as the RV sped through an intersection suffered six broken ribs and a punctured lung.
The RV was left with a gaping hole on the front passenger side as a result of the dramatic chase, which was broadcast live by a helicopter.
The rogue driver also suffered injuries. She was spotted at the scene cuffed from behind with a bloodied face.
