BELLMEAD, Texas (KWTX) Bellmead police arrested a man and a woman early Wednesday after a pursuit involving a vehicle in which a 2-year-old child was also riding.

Amanda Hill, 24, whom police identified as the driver, and William Hill, 25, were taken to the McLennan County Jail.

Both face charges of injury to a child.

Amanda Hill also faces an evading arrest charge and her husband also faces a resisting arrest charge.

William Hill was ordered held in lieu of bonds totaling $12,000, according to online jail records.

Amanda Hill was not listed on the jail’s online roster Wednesday afternoon.

The two were arrested following a chase that started after a Bellmead officer tried to pull over a Dodge Dart at around 2:10 a.m. Wednesday in the 1300 block of Behrens Circle because the car’s headlights weren’t on.

“The driver chose not to yield and proceeded to flee,” police said in a press release Wednesday afternoon.

The chase ended when the driver lost control of the car, which came to rest on an embankment on the shoulder of the road in the 7200 block of Martin Luther King, Jr., Drive.

No one was injured.

Police did not provide information about whether the child in the car was turned over to Child Protective Services or to relatives.
