woman killed after police chase... with a baby in the car

Heard about this crazy story out of Orange County about a woman who was shot and killed by a Santa Ana police officer last Friday after leading police on a high speed chase through several cities, from Buena Park to Santa Ana: Police ID woman killed after chase with baby in her car.

37-year-old Susie Young Kim died at the scene of the shooting after a 30-minute pursuit. The crazy part about it all is, she had her 13-month old daughter in the back seat through the entire chase. Fortunately, she was unharmed. What the hell was this woman thinking?

Details are apparently still unclear about what led the officer to shoot. An officer tried to stop her after suspecting she might be driving under the influence, but she took off, leading the cops on the kind of high-speed chase Southern California knows all too well. Only this time, there was a kid in the backseat.
