FARMINGTON – The woman who led Woods Cross police on a vehicular chase and was hit by two trains in October pleaded guilty last week to two misdemeanor charges.

Bonnie Jean Stroud, 29, entered her pleas to one class A misdemeanor count of driving under the influence and one class B misdemeanor count of reckless driving in 2nd District Court.

As part of her plea, a third-degree felony count of failure to stop at the command of police;  two counts of assault, one count of driving under the influence of alcohol and a count of reckless driving, all class B misdemeanors; and, one count of no valid driver’s license, a class C misdemeanor were dropped.

Court documents said that Stroud was “an unwanted guest” at a party in Woods Cross on Oct. 13, 2013. Police were called and as they arrived, Stroud drove away at a high rate of speed. She led them on a chase that at times reached  speeds as high as 100 miles per hour, police said.

Stroud turned east on 2600 South. At 1050 West, she drove the car into a train crossing and was struck by a southbound train, the court affidavit said. As police arrived there, her vehicle was struck by another southbound train.

A probable cause statement indicated Stroud’s blood alcohol content at the hospital was 0.192, more than double the legal limit of 0.08.

She will be sentenced on May 1.
