Fifty-nine-year-old Illinois resident Leslie Thurow has been ordered to be held without bail for violating terms of her probation. The probation came from Thurow pleading guilty to an aggravated DUI charge just days prior.

According to Cook County records, Thurow struck an unidentified state trooper as she was driving along Interstate 294 in the northbound lanes of the Tri-State Tollway near Berkeley on the Saturday afternoon of August 30.

After pleading guilty to the aggravated DUI charge, Thurow was given a $450,000 bond, but the bond was forfeited.

Thurow’s current charges, which are all felonies, include leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, aggravated DUI in a personal injury accident, and aggravated DUI.

Assistant State Attorney Sean Brown said the trooper involved suffered a broken shoulder blade, vertebrae, arm, ribs, and knees due to the accident.
