A woman is in jail after Ashland police say she hit a car with a family inside while driving a stolen pizza delivery car Sunday.

Denita Amburgey, 32, of Ashland, faces a slew of charges including wanton endangerment and robbery.

As she was leaving, she allegedly got in the pizza delivery car and took off, but not before assaulting an EMT who was outside and tried to stop her.

Police say they were able to find Amburgey in the stolen car and tried to pull her over. They say that's when Amburgey hit another car with a family inside.

She eventually came to a stop at an intersection after the car wasn't driving properly. Police say they caught up to her, but was able to get the car in reverse and backed into the cruiser. That's when officers were able to arrest Amburgey.

Police Chief Todd Kelley tells WSAZ the officer inside was not hurt and the damage was minimal.

Amburgey was taken to the Boyd County Detention Center.
