DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Daytona Beach police say a baby was taken to the hospital after the child was involved in a carjacking and crash.

According to the Daytona Beach Police Department, seven cars were stolen from the Daytona Subaru dealership on Nova Road Friday afternoon.

Detectives spotted one of the stolen vehicles at the Citgo gas station on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and International Speedway Boulevard a short time later, and confronted three people that were with the vehicle.

Two of the suspects fled in one of the other stolen vehicles and the third suspect fled on foot, running through the campus of Bethune Cookman University.

Police say the suspect, 17-year-old Chuckie Adkins III, threw a woman from her car before speeding off with the woman's 1-month-old child in a car seat in the back seat.

The mother screamed, "my baby, my baby, my baby," according to Mike Chitwood, police chief.

Police chased the vehicle until Chuckie crashed into a flat-bed trailer in Holly Hill.

Chuckie was arrested and charged with carjacking, kidnapping, aggravated fleeing and eluding and grand theft of a motor vehicle.

The infant was taken to Halifax Hospital, but was not injured, police said.

The child's mother had minor injuries and was also treated at Halifax Hospital.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers will investigate the crash while police still try to locate the following stolen vehicles -- a silver 2009 Toyota Corolla, a gray 2013 Nissan Rogue, a black 2012 Volkswagon CC and a blue 2012 Ford Escape.
