An Albany woman is in jail after allegedly leading police on a chase for 10 miles through at least three communities.

East Greenbush police say 53-year-old Nancy Esmay was pulled over on Columbia Turnpike Wednesday afternoon for speeding.

But they say she was initially uncooperative and then abruptly drove away.

Officers say they pursued her down I-90 and then 787 before her car crashed in Watervliet.
