The 1994 film The Chase was about exactly that. Charlie Sheen plays a man convicted of a bank robbery he didn't commit, who panics and leads police on a nationwide chase -in a stolen car with a hostage (Kristy Swanson). Yeah, it's a comedy. A subplot concerns media coverage of the chase, in which news outlets lose all perspective trying to get a scoop on the unfolding drama. The movie was critically panned, but was a modest box office success. There are other things you don't know about The Chase.
