All three adult occupants of the car fled on foot and were eventually caught. Police found a six-month-old child in the car. The child was taken into state protective custody. Police say the car was driven by John Monoco of Burlington. The passengers were: Shane Cheely and Nichole Pace, also of Burlington. Monoco faces a variety of traffic violations while he and the others could face child endangerment and other charges, but as yet, charges are still pending.
