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

In footage released by the Texas Department of Public Safety on Friday, Caitlyn Rodriguez, 29, can be seen driving at up to 100mph at times, reports Fox News.

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

Rodriguez eventually loses control before crashing into a truck in front after the tires on her Mercedes SUV are deflated by a police device.

But it doesn’t stop there. The scene gets even more astounding as the wanted person gets out of the wrecked motor and proceeds to run down the side of the road with the baby in tow.

Then Rodriguez invades a white SUV full of passengers, which law enforcement says she was trying to hijack, but it’s too late and they catch up with her.

A clip shared August 31 in a Public Safety Commission meeting, ends with her being removed from the car and taken into custody.

Law enforcement make sure the tot is out of harm’s way by picking up the baby carrier and moving away from the action.

The Bexar County event was captured on camera in June and reportedly led to the Rodriguez being charged with endangering a child, possession of a controlled substance and evading arrest.

Child Protective Services have taken the infant into care, reports ABCNews.
