Texas woman takes off with baby after crashing vehicle in chase

Caitlyn Rodriguez

A woman led law enforcement in Texas on a high-speed chase, continued to flee on foot when her auto crashed and attempted to hijack a vehicle, all while carrying a baby.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety (TXDPS), which released the video, a trooper deployed a tire deflation device that disabled the front tire.

The resulting chase hit speeds near 100 miles per hour on several occasions and included the woman swerving into oncoming traffic lanes.

Despite having an infant in a portable child vehicle seat in her care, she carelessly speeds down the highway, horrifyingly weaving in front of oncoming traffic.

With the auto seat on her arm, Rodriguez dashed across several lanes of the busy highway and hopped into a Nissan Xterra that she tried carjacking.

Hawaii Prepares for Hurricane Lane
The islands will be on the northeast side of Lane, which is where the strongest winds and heaviest rains are found in hurricanes. Lane could become the first hurricane to directly make landfall in Honolulu since Hawaii became a state, Axios reported .

The mum led police on a 100mph auto chase before she crashed her vehicle. The driver of that vehicle left the auto, taking a child from the backseat, before the police arrived. Police say they attempted to stop her because she had outstanding warrants.

Caitlyn Rodriguez has been locked up on child endangerment, possession of a controlled substance and evading arrest charges since her June 15 arrest in San Antonio, local network KSAT reported.

A trooper then arrived and blocked the other vehicle from escaping, drawing his gun on the woman while a second trooper goes in and safely gets the baby from the auto.

The child was released to Child Protective Services, DPS said.
