A driver in a stolen Dodge Charger and the driver of an SUV led multiple law enforcement agencies on a dangerous high-speed chase through Dallas Thursday.

The man who started the chase was seen running with the baby into the building.

During the leg of the pursuit in Dallas County, the driver could be seen speeding through neighborhoods, city streets, and along interstates.

At one point during the chase, the driver stopped the Charger and a white Jeep SUV that had been following the sedan during the chase pulled up alongside and stopped.

The driver of the Charger got out of the vehicle, pulled out a car seat, and put it in the SUV.

The driver then got in the passenger side of the SUV and it sped away as a deputy with the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office pulled up.

The driver of the SUV then continued to try to elude police, speeding through city streets, ignoring stop signs, and driving through a wooden residential fence.

The white SUV stopped in front of Lakewest Head Start Center and the passenger got out of the vehicle and ran inside carrying the car seat with the baby in it.

Moments later, the driver of the white SUV also ran inside the day care.

Elizabeth Neumann, a Head Start employee, said they’d just had a drill the day before.

“We weren’t sure if this was another drill, but then we heard cop cars going on outside, so we knew it was real life.”

Two men are in custody following the chase.
