Angela Estrella, a suicidal mom in Osceola County, Florida, attempted to take her own life and the lives of her children during a high-speed police chase.
The unhinged mother sped through various stoplights and smashed into other vehicles at speeds that reached up to 112 MPH.
The 36-year-old mother was driving in the car with her 18-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son.
After police finally brought the high-speed chase to an end, her daughter said:
“I was trying to make her stop, but she wouldn’t listen to me.”
When asked if her mother was drunk, the girl said she had not been drinking but has a history of nervous breakdowns.
During the high speed chase, the suicidal mother crashed into a police officer’s car and a pedestrian’s van. Estrella hit 112 mph during the frightening ride, slamming into a van and the pursuing police officer’s car.
When police failed to stop the vehicle, they opened fire, unaware that the woman’s children were also inside the vehicle.
In the video, a trooper clearly asks Angela’s daughter:
“Did you know you almost got shot? You have a bullet hole going right through here.”
The children were unharmed, and Angela Estrella suffered minor injuries after she crashed into a third vehicle, which brought the chase to an end.
