WOODS CROSS, Utah (AP) - A Utah woman who was hit twice by freight trains in her car last fall after fleeing police has been sentenced to house arrest.

The Standard-Examiner of Ogden reports (https://bit.ly/1vv9jXy) 30-year-old Bonnie Jean Stroud was ordered to 90 days of home confinement on Monday, and must also pay restitution to two men and Union Pacific Railroad.

Stroud pleaded guilty to DUI and reckless driving after the Oct. 13 incident, which police say happened after she left a house party.

Authorities say she led officers on a high speed chase before she was hit by a train while trying to cross the railroad tracks. Before police could get her out of the car, another train hit her car.

Court documents show her blood alcohol limit was twice the legal limit.
