McCRACKEN COUNTY, KY — The McCracken County Sheriff's Department says a woman was arrested Thursday night after a high speed chase, running away from deputies on foot, escaping handcuffs, then running away again.
The sheriff's department says a deputy tried to stop a vehicle on John Puryear Drive near Exit 11 Thursday night when the driver sped onto Interstate 24, eastbound.
Once in Marshall County, deputies say the vehicle left the south side of the roadway and came to a sudden stop. Two people got out of the car and fled on foot. Deputies say the driver, 24-year-old Kaylin Herzog, of Ledbetter, KY, was taken into custody after a foot chase through a wooded area.

Deputies also say they continued to search the area throughout the night for the passenger of the vehicle, a white male, but couldn't find him.
