In Southeast Texas a woman was rushed to the hospital after police say she jumped off a freeway overpass to escape from police and troopers. 

A Department of Public Safety spokesperson says two women were shoplifting at a Beaumont Dillard's. The two allegedly fled from the store and tried to cross the freeway when a trooper spotted the women and turned on his lights. 

One of the women jumped off of the overpass and fell 15 feet to the ground. She was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment while the other woman was taken to jail.
