Authorities say 23-year-old Jessica Lehmons was taken into custody following the one-vehicle accident for reportedly attempting to elude a pursuing police vehicle. She and her passenger were uninjured, and he was released at the scene. Deputies took Lehmons to the Asotin County Jail.
According to the sheriff’s office, a deputy was attempting to make a traffic stop when the driver allegedly sped off. Lehmons was reportedly arrested last week for not having a valid driver’s license.
Police say the car turned east off Fleshman Way, jumped a curb and went through a fence before coming to a rest on a retaining wall near a building.
