UNION COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - A chase involving deputies in three counties ends with a woman killed in one crash and a state trooper injured in a separate accident.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol says the chase started on Interstate 22 in DeSoto County Thursday when deputies tried stopping a stolen vehicle around 1 p.m.

According to Cpl. Jason Roe with MHP, the driver of that vehicle kept going east into Marshall County where it crashed into another eastbound vehicle near Byhalia, killing Lisa Gay of Batesville.

Roe says the driver of the stolen vehicle, Tae'ona Edmondson of Cape Coral, Florida, then got into another vehicle that was traveling with her and took off.

The chase entered Union County where the vehicle got off the interstate at the Glenfield exit and headed toward Highway 178 on Munsford Drive.

Roe says the vehicle turned around after encountering sheriff's deputies and crashed head-on into a trooper on Munsford Drive.

That trooper, whose name has not been released, was taken to Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union County with moderate injuries.

MHP says criminal charges by multiple agencies are pending against Edmondson.
