Video shot from a helicopter shows a woman leading US police on a high-speed chase and crashing into a pick-up truck, then taking off on foot holding a baby in a carrier.

The Texas Department of Public Safety released video of the incident which happened on June 15 in San Antonio.

Authorities said the woman was travelling at about 100mph before she rear-ended the pick-up, then jumped out of her SUV, grabbed the child carrier and ran.

She then climbed into another vehicle containing a woman and child. Police blocked the vehicle and got everyone out.

The DPS said the woman was charged with child endangerment, evading arrest and possession of a controlled substance. The baby was released to child protective services.
