Newly-released video shows the moments a Texas woman lead police on a 100-mph chase then crashes her car, before attempting to flee on foot and hijack another vehicle.
All while carrying an infant in a portable car seat.
In the video, recently released by the Texas Department of Public Safety, the 29-year-old female driver flees from police reaching speeds of up to 100 miles per hour in her Mercedes-Benz SUV.
The woman narrowly misses several cars while weaving through traffic on a Texas highway, police then roll out a spike strip to burst her tires which sends the woman’s SUV careening off the highway, through the dirt, and onto an access road.
Straying into oncoming traffic and with her front tire shredded, the woman doesn’t admit defeat. She blasts through an intersection before smashing into a pickup truck and wrecking her SUV.
The woman then grabs a car seat with an infant and tries to escape on foot. She runs across a busy road with the baby swinging in its carrier under her arm.
Police corner her as she attempts to hijack another SUV and approach her with weapons drawn. After setting the baby down on the sidewalk, cops pin the fugitive to the ground and end her shot at freedom.
The woman had a few outstanding warrants and has now been charged with evading arrest, possession of a controlled substance, and child endangerment. Child Protective Services took the infant into care.
