Williamson County, IL – An interstate pursuit unfolded in freezing conditions on Thursday as law enforcement chased a stolen vehicle from Illinois’ Interstate 57 into Kentucky. The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office spearheaded the operation following a notification from Marion Police about a stolen vehicle fleeing a traffic stop just after 3am.

According to police reports the chase escalated as the suspects, linked to multiple vehicle thefts, reportedly hurled objects at pursuing officers while speeding south on I-57 and east on I-24. The pursuit ended near US 60 and Harris Road in Kentucky, where the suspects attempted to escape on foot after their vehicle was cornered in a field. In a bizarre twist, the driver, identified as Dylan M. Russell, was apprehended several hours later in a Menard’s restroom, disguised in women’s clothing allegedly stolen during the chase.

The suspects face multiple charges in both Kentucky and Illinois, ranging from drug possession to fleeing police.
