She Flees Custody, Then Is Hit, Killed

A woman whose parents had turned her in for a parole violation fled out the back door of the police station and was struck and killed by a car as officers ran after her.

Katherine Kruger, 21, was being held Saturday night at the station 25 miles northwest of Detroit when she slipped out of her handcuffs, Police Chief Ronald Stephens said. She was struck by a hit-and-run driver about 50 yards from the building as she crossed a road.

The police chief said Kruger had been arrested on a contempt of court warrant at her parents’ home. He said he had no immediate details.

Family members said that she may have been on parole for drunken driving last year.
