Texas woman takes off with baby after crashing car in chase
SAN ANTONIO – Video shot from a helicopter shows a woman leading Texas troopers on a high-speed chase and crashing into a pickup, then taking off on foot holding a baby in a carrier.
The Texas Department of Public Safety released the video Friday. The incident happened June 15 in San Antonio.
Authorities say the woman was traveling at about 100 mph (160 kph) before she rear-ended the pickup that had stopped at a light. She jumped out of her SUV, grabbed the child carrier and ran.
She then climbed into another vehicle containing a woman and child. Troopers blocked the vehicle and got everyone out.
DPS says the woman was charged with child endangerment, evading arrest and possession of a controlled substance. The baby was released to Child Protective Services.
