Woman to appear on felony counts after chase

A Rochester woman who police say drove through her mother's garage and a neighbor's backyard will make her next court appearance Monday.

Kayla Ann Delaney, 21, of 1529 Fourth St. N.E., faces felony counts of first-degree damage to property and fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle, as well as domestic assault and reckless or careless driving, both misdemeanors.

The charges stem from an incident that began about 3:30 a.m. June 24, when officers were sent to a reported assault on Fourth Street Northeast.

When the officer arrived, he activated his emergency lights when he saw a woman — later identified as Delaney — back the car out of the driveway. Instead of stopping, Delaney put the car in drive, hitting the garage door, the report says, continuing out the back of the garage and through the backyard, heading toward Fifth Street.

The officer followed the vehicle, which turned north onto 11th Avenue Northeast at speeds estimated at 70-80 mph. According to the criminal complaint, Delaney evaded spike sticks in the 900 block of 11th Avenue; in the 1600 block, she pulled onto the east sidewalk and turned the vehicle around.


She was southbound on 11th Avenue when she allegedly crashed into a parked vehicle on the west side of the road. Officers removed her from the vehicle and she was taken to Saint Marys Hospital, the report says.

Delaney remains in custody in lieu of $10,000 bond.
