ATLANTA (AP) -- Police say a woman accused of stealing a Cobb County patrol car and fleeing on Interstate 75 has been taken into custody.

Cobb County police spokesman Mike Bowman says officers were responding to a report of a suspicious and armed woman on Windy Hill Drive near Interstate 75 Sunday afternoon. Bowman says the woman was able to get into a marked patrol car and flee southbound on the interstate.

Bowman says police pursued the woman and she hit several cars when she exited the freeway in downtown Atlanta. Bowman says multiple injuries have been reported.

Police say the woman has been taken into custody. Her identity hasn't been released and the chase prompted closures of southbound lanes of the downtown connector - where interstates 75 and 85 meet in Atlanta.
