MOSES LAKE - A Moses Lake woman was allegedly run over by the truck she was driving while attempting to elude police Monday.

An officer contacted Jona Zeigler, 40, Moses Lake, who reportedly has a felony warrant, according to Moses Lake police Capt. Dave Sands.

As the officer approached Zeigler to arrest her, while she was parked near West Broadway Avenue and South Locust Lane in Moses Lake, she reportedly drove away, according to Sands.

Zeigler allegedly drove through downtown Moses Lake, ending up on Lakeview Drive near South Barbara Avenue, where she got out of her truck to start running.

"She tried getting out of her car as it was rolling and tripped and was dragged underneath her vehicle," said Sands.

The truck stopped on a lawn by a chain link fence.

Zeigler was taken to Samaritan Hospital for reported injuries sustained from the incident.

A Moses Lake Fire Department ambulance transported Zeigler.

Police intend to arrest Zeigler for the felony warrant and felony eluding, once her health condition stabilizes, according to Sands.

Moses Lake police did not know the status of her health condition.

    Wow all of that including running over yourself instead of just facing what you already knew was out there awaiting you for not having taken care of your obligation to the court. I wonder if the community will end up being taxed for her medical care too?

    Sadly, another otherwise productive life of crime sidetracked due to poor planning.
