HERMISTON, Ore. — Police in eastern Oregon say two young children were in the back seat of a vehicle that led them on a highway chase at more than 100 mph.

Officers say a 3-year-old boy and an 8-month-old girl were in child seats. They were released in the care of a deputy.

The driver has been arrested on several charges. She was identified as 26-year-old Amelia Cortez of Hermiston. She was not available for comment. It was not clear whether she had a lawyer.

Umatilla County authorities say the chase began Thursday after a complaint of interference by a non-custodial parent. Officers say the vehicle was stolen.
