A baby was pulled from the wreckage of a car crash that killed her mother in south suburban Robbins Friday afternoon.

But, it was what happened to the passenger inside her car that has some in shock.

Dashboard cameras inside Trooper Sean Eitel's patrol car show the moment Brandy Wilson's baby became trapped inside that burning vehicle.

It began with a police chase. Wilson allegedly swerved all over the road, missing a stop sign. Then, a dramatic crash as the car spins upside down.
