State Trooper chase in Jones Co. ends in crash


A rollover accident just outside of Monticello has put two girls in the hospital.

At 12:04 a.m. Friday, an Iowa State trooper attempted to stop Tiea Griffith, 18, near the intersection of 172nd St. and County Road X73 in Jones County for a traffic violation. That's when the Mechanicsville native sped away on X73 in her 2001 PT Cruiser.  Griffith lost control and rolled her vehicle into the ditch.

Her passenger, Samantha Brewer, 20, of Muscatine and she had to be taken by ambulance to a Monticello hospital for treatment for their injuries. Both were wearing their seatbelt at the time of the crash.

Charges against Griffith are pending.  The state patrol is investigating the crash.
