Kensett Man Gets Jail Time After Near-Collision with Law Vehicle

A Kensett man whose vehicle almost collided head-on with a patrol car last year has pleaded guilty to charges related to the incident.

On August 30th, 2020, the Worth County Sheriff’s Office responded to a domestic abuse call about five miles west of Kensett when deputies spotted a vehicle driven by 34-year-old Derek Christensen approaching at a high rate of speed. After a near collision at the intersection of Killdeer Avenue and 410th Street, Christensen drove through a yard and, while avoiding the initial head-on crash, struck a second patrol car at the intersection of Killdeer and 430th Street.

Monday, Christensen pleaded guilty to one count of eluding law enforcement at a speed over 25 mph over the limit and was ordered to pay a $625 fine. He was also given seven days in jail, but received credit for seven days jail time already served.
