Florida lawmakers said three minors are safe after a high-speed hunt for a burglary suspect ended in a crash in Jackson County.
Representatives say the man set out when they first tried to talk to him, after a robbery nearby. A chase ensued before he lost control of his car and crashed near the intersection of Dogwood Drive and Old Greenwood Road, according to the Jackson County Police Office.
Deputies took the man into custody.
According to the deputies, a 17-year-old girl crawled out of the car and found a two-year-old boy standing in the back seat. Representatives also found a 3-year-old boy thrown from the car on the lawn.
Representatives say the children were all “miraculously” unharmed.
The mayor’s office says they did not know that three minors were in the car during the chase, otherwise they would not allow her to continue.
Representatives identified the suspect as Domingo Morales, Hamilton, Fernando, as a suspect. He is in critical condition.
Representatives say the man is wanted for being in the country illegally, according to the Department of Homeland Security. It is also wanted in connection with human trafficking and smuggling.
