Woman with baby leads police on high-speed chase before crashing

The Texas Department of Public Safety has released wild video of a police chase in San Antonio this past June, in which a woman led officers on a chase, crashed into a truck, and then fled on foot while carrying a baby stroller before attempting to carjack another SUV.

Rodriguez then exited her auto and ran around to the passenger rear door and took out the baby in its vehicle seat. The incident occurred in the city's southwest side near Lackland Air Force Base. The woman, later identified as 29-year-old Catilyn Rodriguez, hit speeds of over 100 miles per hour at some points in the high-speed pursuit.

One Texas Department of Safety trooper was able to position his vehicle to block the woman's escape, though, and trained his gun on her.

According to the DPS, the woman had outstanding warrants and fled after a DPS trooper conducted a traffic stop.

McCain also made clear he did not want Trump to attend his funeral service, instead choosing former Presidents George W. A statement Sunday from the Maryland Secretary of State's office said the flags will be lowered until McCain is buried.

The SUV could be seen speeding down a busy highway, at one point hitting 100 miles per hour, before running over a tire deflation device that disabled her front tire, police said. An officer is seen throwing a spike strip down on the road, and the SUV rear-ends a truck a short time later.

She then proceeded to speed past traffic, went over a central reservation and even into the path of oncoming vehicles. The woman crashed and ran from police with the baby in a auto seat. The child was released to Child Protective Services.

Rodriguez was charged with child endangerment, evading arrest and possession of a controlled substance.
