Milwaukee Woman Struck Two Sheriff Deputies, Squad Car and Her Passenger During a Traffic Stop

A Milwaukee woman is facing up to 45 years in prison if convicted for striking two sheriff’s deputies and a squad car on Sunday.  

According to Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office, just after 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, a deputy stopped a vehicle for speeding on I-43 eastbound at W. Loomis Road. 

The driver’s license was suspended and the deputy called for a tow.

When the tow truck arrived, the passenger got out, but the driver threw the car in reverse - sending the passenger into the distress lane wall, and dragging and throwing both deputies into a lane of traffic, before slamming into the squad and fleeing.

According to Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office, two sheriff’s deputies and a passenger who had exited a vehicle at a traffic stop were struck by the vehicle when the driver threw the car in reverse, accelerated at a high rate of speed, rammed the squad and fled the scene on Sunday. 

Both deputies sustained injuries, and narrowly missed being struck by oncoming traffic. 

The passenger was transported to the hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

The woman had provided false identification, and the passenger refused to identify her. Sheriff’s detectives investigated and arrested Kelvina D. Freeman, age 23, of Milwaukee, on Wednesday.

Potential charges being sought are 1st Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety/x3, Vehicle Operator Flee/Elude Officer, Resisting or Obstructing Officer, and Criminal Damage to Property.  If convicted of all counts, she faces up to 45 years in prison.
