The crash ended in wreckage and Vicky White was hospitalized for injuries from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, officials said. She died in a hospital on Monday evening.
"When we took Casey White into custody, after he was surrendered, he said, 'Help my wife, she just shot herself,'" said Commander Deputy U.S. Marshal Chad Hunt told ABC News' "Good Morning America" ​​on Tuesday.
An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.

The manhunt began on April 29 when Casey White and Vicky White, who are not related, escaped from the Lauderdale County Jail. Authorities said they believe Vicky White willingly participated in the escape, which took place on her last day before retiring.
The duo left Alabama in a Ford Edge, leaving the car in Williamson County, Tennessee -- about a two-hour drive north of Florence -- just hours after the prison break.
"When we found the orange Ford Edge, our investigators were able to determine that Casey and Vicky had purchased another vehicle from Tennessee," Hunt said.

On Monday, US Marshals said investigators were in Evansville to investigate a lead after a 2006 Ford F-150 believed to have been used by Casey White and Vicky White was abandoned at a car wash on May 3 was found. The police were made aware of the vehicle on Sunday.
"We were able to verify the footage -- that was Casey White in the Ford F-150," Hunt said.

"After locating the vehicle [Ford F-150], we received information that they may have gotten into a beige 2006 Cadillac. We sent our people to the car wash area and observed the vehicle at a hotel," US Marshal Marty Keely told GMA.
Lauderdale County Sheriff Rick Singleton said no one was injured in the escape.

"They were only located through policing, good policing, with all agencies involved," Keely said. "We also had some information, tips that came forward. We definitely want to say thank you to the public."
Vicky White had served as a correctional officer in Lauderdale County for 17 years. Singleton described them as "model employees" until they escaped.
She withdrew about $90,000 in cash from several banks before allegedly fleeing, Lauderdale County District Attorney Chris Connolly said. He said the banks are based in the Lauderdale County area, but he couldn't say when they withdrew the money.
