Carolyn Quiah had evaded authorities since her Sept. 13 escape, but was apprehended Thursday after she crashed and flipped a rental car in the Kingsessing section of Philadelphia.

The U.S. Marshals Office says they spotted Quiah heading southbound in the area of 15th and Broad Streets around 12:30 p.m. They stopped her, but they say she then fled the scene in her vehicle and struck a U.S. Marshal in the left leg. He suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

At the time of her initial escape, police had warned the public to “please keep your cars and house locked up”.
