Dash cam shows baby injured in police chase

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Lubbock Police Department released the shocking video Monday of a Saturday night car chase that resulted in an accident. An 18-month-old girl was ejected from the vehicle and stood up to run after the car.

Minutes before, 17-year-old Kenny Shawn Jimenez and three other teens robbed 19-year-old Chelsea Betenbough in a Depot District parking lot. When Betenbough was approached by Jimenez she assumed it was a joke. He demanded she hand over her things, so she gave him the little cash she had.

"Then he turned around and was like, 'no, give me your purse' and me not really thinking, I was like 'no.' He said, 'I will shoot you, give me your purse,'" Betenbough said.

Betenbough quickly handed it over. Before the vehicle sped away, she noticed the three other individuals and a baby in the back seat.

"He was getting in the car and I said 'all that with a baby in the back seat?' I was shocked I saw her," Betenbough said.

Betenbough called police who quickly located the vehicle. The suspects sped away, leading officials to the 3700 block of Avenue P where the vehicle crashed.

Police quickly realized the child had been ejected through the back window. The video shows the little girl standing up and walking around. She then stumbles for a moment and falls, but quickly gets up and runs toward the vehicle. 

One of the suspects got out of the car and grabbed the child. Witnesses in the neighborhood said two of the suspects were seen running down the street with the child. They were later arrested in a woman's backyard.

The toddler was taken to UMC, but remarkably she only had minor injuries.
