Peosta Woman Injured in Police Pursuit

A Peosta woman was injured during a pursuit with police on Monday night.

The Peosta Police Department says they, along with the Dubuque County Sheriff’s Office, responded to a domestic disturbance at 458 Leslie Drive in Peosta around 8 pm. Authorities received information that one of the parties involved left in a vehicle and was possibly intoxicated before officers arrived. 

The vehicle then fled from the traffic stop, with a pursuit ensuing southbound on Cox Springs Road. It lost control at the T-intersection of North Cascade Road and Cox Springs Road and entered a field, rolling multiple times. 

The driver, 43-year old Stacey Boulting of Peosta, was ejected from the vehicle. She was transported to MercyOne with serious injuries. 

Both Peosta Police and Dubuque County Sheriff’s Office vehicles were damaged during the pursuit. There was no report of injuries to the officer and deputy involved. 

Peosta Police are investigating the incident and charges are pending.
