At one point during the chase, the Herring is accused of driving the pickup truck in the wrong direction of traffic.

Deputies arrested Herring at the intersection with Pine Ridge Road and Livingston Road.

Deputies were able to get to him because the driver of the vehicle hit by the truck followed after the crash and kept deputies updated on the truck driver’s location.
