Police officers are often most at risk in approaching cars along highways and a new case shows just how dangerous that task can be. Two officers were injured when Kelvina Freeman, 23, threw her car into reverse and fled a traffic stop. She was later captured and now, rather than facing a speeding ticket, Freeman is facing serious jail time for multiple felonies.
Remarkably, she was not arrested for days. It is astonishing that she could actually escape or that it took days when you have a passenger left at the scene as well as her identity. It is hard to imagine that anyone would think that they could get away with such an act, particularly when you leave a passenger with police. Of course, none of this suggests a rational mind.
She faces up to 45 years in jail.
