KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Police, trying to track down a burglary suspect, found him in a stolen vehicle at a McDonald's near 87th and Blue Ridge Blvd., on Tuesday.

When police tried to stop him, the suspect took off, ramming into three separate police cruisers. Police pursued the vehicle and said the suspect later crashed in a ditch near 75th and Cleveland. When police approached the vehicle they discovered a woman passenger and a one-year-old baby on her lap in the front seat.

"Initially we had no idea that the baby was in the car," said Sgt. Luis Ortiz. "Obviously, had we known that we would have done things differently."

The child was not injured in the accident but was taken to the hospital for an evaluation.

The suspect was arrested. No other information has been made available at this time.
