TULSA, Okla., Dec. 4 (UPI) -- A baby found in an unresponsive state on the floor of a car pursued by Tulsa, Okla., police, is expected to recover, police said.
The 6-month-old boy was discovered Tuesday after police chased a car going 75 mph in a 30-mph zone. The chase reached speeds approaching 100 mph, police Capt. Cathy Reynolds said.
The driver, Andrew Crowels, 18, pulled the car into a parking lot and fled on foot, but was quickly caught, and told police about the baby.
The baby, who is Crowels' son, was taken by squad car to a hospital and was resuscitated. Child Crisis Cpl. Greg Smith said doctors think the child might have a minor head injury.
Reynolds said police found an unloaded handgun in the area of the chase and believe Crowels may have thrown it from his car window during the pursuit.
Crowels was jailed on complaints that included speeding and abuse of a child, the Tulsa World reported Wednesday.
