CBS2’s Crystal Cruz reported from the scene.
Witnesses said the woman being pursued in the stolen vehicle was exceeding 100 mph when she blew through the intersection.
Sheriff’s Deputies said they were in pursuit of the female — a teenager — after she carjacked a driver at a nearby shopping center.
She reportedly hit a dark-colored vehicle containing a family of five and one of those “Baby on Board” stickers. Late Sunday, officials said the car contained a black family — two adults (a male and female), two teenagers and an infant.
