Woman ticketed for high-speed hospital chase

/ Source: The Associated Press

A Vermont woman won’t face criminal charges for leading police on a high-speed chase, because she was rushing her burned baby to the hospital.

She will get a traffic ticket, though.

Vermont State Police say the woman has been issued a civil ticket for failing to obey a police officer.

A trooper attempted to pull her over but she ignored his lights and sirens. Eventually, the trooper escorted her to the hospital.

Police received reports she was traveling as fast as 90 to 100 miles-per-hour.

Her nine-month-old son was burned by steam from a fallen iron. He suffered second-degree burns to his hand and foot.
