BATON ROUGE - Police found a woman hiding under a truck after she allegedly led them on a wrong-way chase and then crashed into a dumpster.
Baton Rouge police officers began pursuing Nancy Augustus, 25, around 1 a.m. Sunday when she was driving on the wrong side of the N Acadian Thruway West. Police say she pulled into a parking lot, got out of her car and then got back into the vehicle when authorities approached her.
