Sarah Marie Phillips (870)



12/13/2001: Phillips, a nursing student, drove a Ford Explorer that was struck from behind by a suspect driving 70 MPH during a police chase. Her father Jim Phillips sued the county and won a $200K settlement. Further, he founded the nonprofit PursuitWatch to highlight and address the high number of deadly police chases. Among other accomplishments, PursuitWatch helped the Orlando police establish the most progressive and effective chase policy in the U.S. in 2004. http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2003-04-15/news/0304150125_1_jim-phillips-sheriff-office-orange-county-sheriff
