LUBBOCK, Texas — Police released dash cam video from a vehicle pursuit that ended in a crash and a toddler being ejected into the street.

Kenny Shawn Jimenez, 17, and three other teens approached a woman in a parking lot Saturday night and took her purse, according to WAFB. As the vehicle sped off and the woman called police, she noticed there was a small child in the back seat.

Officers quickly located the car and pursued it for several blocks. It crashed a few blocks away, and  the 18-month-old girl was ejected from the back window.

In the video, the little girl gets up, stumbles toward the vehicle and then falls. She was taken to a hospital and treated for minor injuries.

Two of the suspects were later arrested in a woman's backyard.
