FORT THOMAS, Ky. – Police in Kentucky recently released surveillance video from a car crash that sent a baby flying.

The footage shows the car going off the side of the road and rolling as the 7-month-old baby flies out of the car.

The baby is now okay, but he was in critical condition after the crash.

The man who was driving the car behind the one that crashed told police he couldn’t believe what he saw.

“The baby came out and landed on the rocks, so the gentleman picked it up, and he couldn’t believe number one he said: that the baby was alive and that he was physically and mentally distraught after seeing that occur right in front of him,” said Lt. Rich Whitford with the Fort Thomas Police.

The crash happened in February.

It killed the driver who was high on heroin at the time.

The baby’s parents were in the car at the time of the crash.

Police are now searching for 34-year-old Amanda Thomas and 42-year-old Billy Lee Jones.

“We’ve been trying to call and going there trying to find them. There’s a warrant. There’s a 50-thousand-dollar bond, so if they do see this, call myself. Call the Fort Thomas Police, or turn yourself in at this time,” said Whitford.

Investigators say they just received blood tests back showing both parents were also high on heroin at the time.

They’re charged with criminal abuse.
