Woman is injured while fleeing from Iowa State Patrol

A 22-year-old woman was flown to an Omaha hospital with critical injuries Wednesday night after a vehicle she was riding in crashed while fleeing a traffic stop near Missouri Valley, Iowa.

Kay Dilley, of Pisgah, Iowa, was taken by helicopter to the Nebraska Medical Center, the Iowa State Patrol said. She was not wearing a seat belt, the patrol said.

A hospital spokeswoman said Dilley remained in critical condition Thursday morning.

The driver of the vehicle, Demi L. Jahn, 27, of Omaha, was taken into custody. The patrol did not report any injuries to Jahn.

The incident began about 7:50 p.m. when a 1995 Ford Crown Victoria traveling north on Interstate 29 failed to stop for a state trooper. The Ford left the Interstate and was pursued through Missouri Valley, where the driver lost control.

The Ford rolled over on Loomis Avenue, north of 290th Street, the report said.
