The Midland County Sheriff's Office said in a release that the 35-year-old Midland man "bypassed a locking mechanism" on the county transport van and jumped from the rear when the vehicle stopped about noon Tuesday at an intersection.

Authorities said a 25-year-old man driving a truck saw the still-handcuffed man hiding by a freeway overpass. He stopped and told the escaped man to "get on the ground" and that police were on the way. He flagged down an officer after the man began running again.

The escaped man was caught a short time later and taken to the Midland County Jail.
