Two Casey County deputies were reportedly patrolling on Henson Creek when corrections officials say the inmates in a stolen truck. Authorities say the escapees tried to run the deputies down.

The deputies opened fire, but no one was hurt. Both men surrendered. The Kentucky Department of Corrections is recognizing what it is calling the bravery of the deputies.
