Woman caught up in shooting critically injured

She wrecked after hitting two vehicles involved in a shootout inside the Brainerd tunnels

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – Police say a running gun battle Tuesday night in the Brainerd tunnels injured an innocent victim.

They were called to a wreck a few blocks from the Brainerd side of the tunnel around 9 PM.

They found a 49 year old woman who suffered critical injuries when she crashed.

Witnesses told them that occupants of a pickup truck and a BMW were shooting at one another and speeding through the tunnel.

The pickup then hit the woman’s car as she tried to get out of the way.

Her car then spun into the path of the BMW.

She was ejected from her vehicle in that collision.

Police are still looking for the suspects in the two other vehicles.
