Authorities in South Carolina are investigating after a pregnant woman was fatally shot in the head after officers say she attempted to run over a police officer.
It happened along Jamies Creek Road in Woodruff in 1:40 p.m. Thursday afternoon.
According to a report released by the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office on behalf of the Woodruff Police Department, a officer made a traffic stop on a car. a unidentified man in the car fled from the traffic stop and the officer began to pursue the man.
A female inside the car attempted to use the car to assault the officer and was shot in the process.
Spartanburg County Coroner Rusty Clevenger identified the shooting victim is 28-year-old Lacey Denise Lamb.
Clevenger said that Lamb, who was 21 weeks pregnant at the time of the shooting, and her baby died as a result of a gunshot wound. An autopsy will be conducted Friday.
Witnesses from the scene said that two people were inside a car that crashed into a trailer when police stopped them. One of the people ran off, but the driver, they say, came straight for the police officer.
"And she went straight towards him," explains Alisa Thomas. "I knew she was, I mean, like she was going to run over him. So when he fired, he apparently hit her in the head, she lost consciousness and I saw the car just go straight, drive through the underpinning under the trailer."
A spokesman for the State Law Enforcement Division said that the unidentified officer is okay and a male suspect who jumped out of the car was taken into custody.
33-year-old Matthew Simmons was arrested and charged with his 3rd driving under suspension offense.
