A cable guardrail may have made a life-saving difference for a Farmington Hills woman that police say was having a mental health crisis Tuesday.

The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office says that at about 8:15 a.m., deputies got an alert about a car traveling northbound on US-23 near I-96 that had fled from Ann Arbor Police.

The driver, a 28-year old Farmington Hills resident, was reported to be in a mental health crisis and had originally been in Ann Arbor where she had escaped Paramedics and nearly struck them with her car.

“One of our Deputies on patrol located the car and attempted to stop her to check on her welfare, but she fled northbound into Brighton Township,” stated a release. “After she crossed the median and struck the cable guide wires, she fled on foot into oncoming traffic where she was taken into custody by the Deputy and Green Oak Charter Township Police Department Officers. The driver was then transported to the hospital for mental health treatment.”
