FARMINGTON – The woman whose car was hit by two trains as she allegedly tried to flee from police was booked into the Davis County Jail last week and has since bailed out of jail.
Bonnie Jean Stroud, 29, faces possible charges of aggravated assault, evading police, reckless driving, driving under the influence, disorderly conduct and driving without a valid driver’s license.
Stroud is accused of fleeing from police who were attempting to stop her on 2600 South on the morning of Sunday, Oct. 13.
She allegedly was an unwanted guest at a home on Redwood Road, according to a probable cause statement. Police say she became upset at being asked to leave and threw items around and pepper-sprayed two people at the home.
She left the home in a Mercedes Benz, but allegedly refused to pull over when a patrol officer attempted to stop her, and a chase ensued.
Police say Stroud headed east on 2600 South and hit a southbound train. As officers were trying to remove her from her vehicle a second train hit the car.
Stroud was taken to the University of Utah Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Her blood alcohol level was .192, more than double the legal limit, according to the probable cause statement.
The Davis County Attorney’s Office is screening for possible charges.
