Couple faces charges fleeing police with a child

BELLMEAD, TX - An early Wednesday morning flight from police with a two year old child in the car has sent a couple to jail.

Bellmead police spokesman Kory Martin says officers spotted a black Dodge Dart in the 1300 block of Behrens Circle running without headlights just after two in the morning Wednesday.

Officers got into position to stop the vehicle and noticed indications that the driver might be under the influence.

Officers turned on their lights and siren to get the driver to stop, but she sped off.

Officers followed the car trying to get the driver to stop, but she kept going, eventually losing control of the vehicle and driving up an embankment in the 7200 block of MLK.

Police identified the driver as 24-year-old Amanda Lofton Hill and her passenger as 25-year-old WIlliam Hill.

Officers noticed indications that both were under the influence of alcohol while taking them into custody.

They then discovered the two year old child in the vehicle.

Amanda Lofton Hill was charged with evading in a vehicle, both she and WIlliam Hill were charged with injury to a child/reckless endangerment and William Hill was additionally charged with resisting arrest.

Both were transported to the McLennan County Jail.
