Woman arrested after vehicle pursuit of 110 mph on I-15



A woman was arrested Wednesday after fleeing from law enforcement in Iron County with her mother in the car.

The Iron County Sheriff’s Office reports 40-year-old Kelly Stenger was seen driving around the Kanrravilla area when deputies attempted to stop her at 12:50 p.m. She had an active warrant out for her arrest.

Stenger fled from deputies at slow speeds heading south. They tried to spike her vehicle’s tires, but she drove off the road to avoid the spikes.

Deputies say Stenger continued south, got onto Interstate 15 and headed south, reaching speeds of 110 mph.

Troopers with the Utah Highway Patrol eventually were able to spike Stenger’s vehicle’s tires near mile post 17 on I-15. She tried to exit the freeway at exit 16, where she drove off the road.

When the vehicle stopped, she jumped out and fled on foot. Stenger reportedly left her disabled mother, who was uninjured, in the car.

Authorities took Stenger’s mother back to her home and Stenger was arrested after a short foot pursuit.

She was booked into jail on several charges, including failure to stop, drug-related charges and reckless endangerment.

Individuals charged in complaints are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in court.
