LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A woman is facing DUI charges after police said she ran a red light and crashed into an ambulance last year. The impact injured four people, including two EMS workers.
Renee Holt was in court Tuesday for a pretrial hearing. She didn't want to speak on camera, but her boyfriend Trevis Prostell told WHAS11 News that the two were fleeing an attack at the time of the crash.
"We were being chased," Prostell said. "She wasn't trying to hurt anybody. I forgive her, I love her. We were running for our lives."
The crash happened when Holt was driving last April at the intersection of 7th Street and Muhammad Ali Boulevard.
"We were being chased by some friends, and in fear for our lives," Prostell told WHAS11 News. "We were heading to the police station when we ran into the ambulance."
Prosecutor Richard Elder said the discovery in the case has been filed. He couldn't comment on details of the case, but said both sides still need a little more time to talk to everyone involved.
Holt will have another pretrial hearing August 16. She's charged with DUI, two counts of wanton endangerment and two counts of criminal mischief.
