WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities are seeking a Wichita woman who is accused of nearly hitting a group of mounted police officers.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/2exJgkI ) reports that a collision was narrowly avoided early Sunday when the woman exited a parking lot in the city’s Old Town district at a high rate of speed.

Wichita police Sgt. Wendell Nicholson says the mounted officers tried to stop the woman’s Jeep at a stoplight but the woman sped past officers. Nicholson says one of the officers was forced to back his mounted horse so he would not be struck by the vehicle speeding past them.

Police are seeking the woman on suspicion of aggravated assault of a law officer.
