According to Lt. Christopher Cook with the Arlington Police Department the chase began around 2:30 a.m., Thursday morning when the mother of the children texted police that she had been shot three times while being in the family's RV.

The chase began in Hunt County and traveled through Dallas.

She either jumped or was pushed out of the RV, Cook said, while it was going 80 to 90 miles per hour on Interstate 30 near Caddo Mills.

The husband kept going with the children in the RV, eventually starting a chase with the Caddo Mills Police Department and the Hunt County Sheriff's Office, according to Cook.

Police said the man appeared to have let the two children out of the auto and officers were able to get them safely away from the RV.

The RV eventually ran over spike strips placed on the interstate in Arlington and sparks flew as the vehicle drove slowly on its rims.

Continuing down I-30, the RV eventually caught fire and stopped in Arlington near Cooper Street.

She was taken to a Baylor hospital in Dallas County, where she underwent surgery. Before the vehicle became engulfed, the suspect appeared to let the children out of the RV through a door, and as officers were assisting the children, they heard a gunshot.
