The SUV drives off, then somebody jumps out of the truck and jumps over the concrete median running into traffic and into the woods.

Troopers said the suspect had broken into the window, peeled the steering column of the pickup truck and started the ignition of the unoccupied car.

The suspect was taken into custody later that morning with the help of local law enforcement, according to troopers.
