WICHITA, Kansas, Apr 18, 2005 -- A story we've been following continues to get emotional reaction from our viewers. It deals with the way police handled a woman who had been driving erratically. Police didn't know the woman was having a diabetic reaction.
Christina Deleon, 30 has a broken arm, her head is swollen and her eyes are blackened. The question now is, how did she get these injuries? From a traffic accident or from what police did after it.
"I would think from the way that I feel and the way that I look that it was done incorrectly," said Deleon.
The incident began when a motorist reported an erratic driver, spotting the car in oncoming lanes of traffic. When police moved in, they say the woman was awake but unresponsive.
"At one point, she looked over at me, put her foot on the gas and took off through the yard," said Officer Brian Hurley, Wichita Police Department.
When Christina hit a tree, police moved in. The only problem was that she was not responding. Police feared Christina could take off at any moment and decided that she must be removed from the car.
An officer then broke the window and what happened next is the source of controversy.
