A woman from Marshalltown was killed Tuesday afternoon (9/3) while she was fleeing a traffic stop in Knoxville. The Iowa State Patrol says 40-year-old Erin Ruth Weers was going north on Highway 14 at 3:25pm when Knoxville Police tried to make a traffic stop. Weers took off north on 14 and an officer saw her car go into the west ditch and then flip over. Weers was partly ejected from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene. The chase exceeded speeds of 90 miles an hour.
