CREATED Jun. 16, 2013
WINNEBAGO COUNTY – Wisconsin State Patrol arrested a man for recklessly endangering a child.
Authorities say just before 7:30 p.m. Saturday, they began looking for a non-custodial parent who had taken a 10 month-old baby.
A State Trooper found the car just before 8:00 p.m. and the man driving the car with the child inside, started a pursuit, reaching speeds of 90 miles per hour. Because of the child in the car, the pursuit was stopped, but the trooper kept the vehicle in sight.
The driver finally came to a railroad crossing with gates down, and a train moving on East Lone Elm. The driver went through first gate and turned parallel with the tracks driving along side of the train and then got stuck in a ditch.
After 30 minutes, the man finally got out of the car with the baby.
No one was hurt, and the child was returned to its mother.
Authorities say, Barrington M. Daniel from Oshkosh was arrested for several charges.
