ST. LOUIS, Missouri (KTVI) — A mother is in custody after leading police on a high-speed chase with her five children, including an infant, inside the car.
FOX 2 was on a story about the St. Louis Rams when an engineer spotted the end of a police chase.
It happened around 4:30 p.m. at Broadway and Convention.
The Wellston Police Department says the chase started from a shoplifting incident involving the woman at a Family Dollar store. She took off in a white mini van and slammed into a police car. The officer was not seriously injured.
The police chase went through north St. Louis where the woman allegedly hit a pedestrian. The victim was taken to a hospital listed in guarded condition.
The vehicle crashed in front of the Edward Jones Dome. The woman ran from the scene, leaving her children behind, but was arrested quickly by police.
Police interviewed some of the children and a female passenger at the scene. That woman was in custody a short time but was later released. Some of the kids were screaming and crying in the backseat. Luckily, none of them were injured.
