News: 3 dead after woman steals Marion County deputy’s vehicle and crashes


MARION COUNTY, FL – Three people were killed when a woman stole a Marion County Sheriff deputy’s vehicle last week and crashed, according to a WSVN report.

Authorities said 33-year-old Kendra Boone was able to get into the vehicle after deputies had responded to a shopping mall in Silver Springs on a report that a woman had tried to steal another person’s keys.  Boone then sped away from the parking lot with deputies pursuing her at speeds that reached up to 100 miles per hour.

They attempted to deploy stop sticks but Boone continued on and eventually lost control of the vehicle on State Road 40.  There she swerved into the opposite lanes of traffic and crashed into a pickup truck with three people inside.

Boone was killed in the wreck along with two people in the pickup, 73-year-old Earl Middleton and a 72-year-old woman, both from Waterloo, South Carolina.  Earl’s brother Russell was critically injured.

The Marion County Sheriff said Boone had over 20 previous arrests along with prior convictions for auto theft, grand theft and attempted robbery.
