Newly released video shows a woman leading police in Texas on a high-speed chase before crashing into another vehicle and running out of the car with her baby.

The woman, identified by police as 29-year-old Catilyn Rodriguez, is seen pulling a baby out of the back of the crashed SUV she was driving before jogging across a busy street.

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. She lost control of the car and crashed into another vehicle in front of her.
