Police say the Buick then continued on and police began chasing it. Soon afterwards it struck another car at 32nd and Tennyson Street.

One of those victims was Mindy McCall.

“(I was) shocked she was able to keep going and hit three more cars,” McCall said. “The amount of damage to my car, we didn’t think she’d keep going that far.”

    We had kids out just moments before she hit the parked car and shot it up on the sidewalk…. not a care in the world for anyone but herself…
