Troopers said Officer Chris Bonner blew through a red light last Thursday while chasing two armed suspects.

Bonner was allegedly traveling 90 mph when the crash occurred.

Bonner crashed into a vehicle being driven by Yahaira Castro, who had the green light. Castro was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Paramedics dragged Castro from her car by her broken arms.

“They had to actually pull me with my arms from out of the car,” Castro said. “I just want to get better right now, and at least that no one goes through what I go through.”
