Moment Ohio cop shoots woman through windshield while clinging on to hood of car after she mowed him down in wild police chase

An Ohio cop has shot a woman through a windshield while clinging to the roof of her car after she mowed him down in a wild police chase caught on camera. 

Police identified the driver as Holly Lynn Graham, 32, from Columbus following the dramatic parking lot incident in the north of the city Wednesday afternoon. 

The chaos was captured from multiple angles through the bodycams of several Columbus PD sergeants on the scene. 

A stolen 2015 Toyota Camry can be seen reversing away from surrounding cops as one officer lays spike strips across the parking lot exit in an attempt to trap the SUV. 

One of the sergeants approaches the vehicle as it reverses – but Graham suddenly accelerates towards him and rams him, sending him flying on top of the hood.  

The sergeant opens fire through the windshield several times while clinging to the vehicle

He opens fire through the windshield several times while clinging to the vehicle as it speeds away, sending him tumbling to the ground. 

His colleagues chase the SUV and shout ‘get out of the car’ as they point their guns at the getaway driver. 

The same incident is shown from the perspective of the rammed officer through his bodycam – showing the vehicle strike him with shocking force. 

Graham speeds away, leaving the sergeant gasping for breath beside debris where her tires tore up the roadside. 

The officers can be heard shouting ‘officer down’ and ‘he got away!’ amid the carnage.

The officer points his gun at her and shouts ‘lay down, put your hands behind your back’ repeatedly as she slumps to the ground. 

Columbus Police said the incident unfolded at around 3.23pm on Wednesday when officers were dispatched to the 1700 block of East Dublin Granville Road over a report of a stolen vehicle in the area.

The owner said their car was taken from Lancaster, Ohio and they had tracked it to East Dublin Granville Road. 

Officers attempted to stop the car in the area, but Graham fled to the Huntley Square shopping center and began ‘driving erratically around the lot’ the department said. 

‘While in the parking lot, the vehicle began driving in reverse, before abruptly driving forward and striking a Columbus Police sergeant,’ the department said. 

‘The vehicle continued driving through the parking lot with the sergeant on the hood of the vehicle. The sergeant discharged their firearm several times, striking the driver.’ 

It was not until Graham reached the entrance ramp of Interstate 71 north and collided head-on with two vehicles that police were able to detain her. 

Officers tried to give her aid before she was transported to Riverside Hospital in a ‘serious condition’, the department said.   

The occupants of the two vehicles the suspect struck were treated at scene for minor injuries. 

Meanwhile, the struck sergeant was transported to Grant hospital in stable condition. 

The sergeant has been identified as a 10-year veteran of the Columbus Division of Police, but his name has not been released per Marsy’s Law.
