A carjacking that began in Baltimore ended in Rockville Wednesday night when a woman jumped from her stolen car with her toddler in her arms.

Terron Alvin White, 22, forced his way into a Lexus at a gas station on Edmondson Avenue just after 10 p.m., police said. White sped off with a woman and her 20-month-old child inside the car, according to police.

On I-95, investigators said White sideswiped a state trooper's vehicle, which was parked near a work zone. The trooper gave chase as White allegedly hit speeds over 100 mph.

Another trooper spotted the Lexus on the Outer Loop of the Beltway and noticed that the passenger door was hanging open due to damage from the earlier collision. Police say White was accelerating and then slowing down to speeds as low as 10 mph.

The woman said she thought White was going to rape her in front of her child, so when the car slowed down, she acted like she was going to buckle her seatbelt but instead reached for the door and jumped out near the Cabin John Parkway with her baby in her arms, News4's Pat Collins reported.

A short time later White pulled over and was arrested.

The mother was treated for a cut to the head. The child was not hurt.
