FINDLAY, Ohio (WTVG) A dramatic scene playing out along I-75. A man driving a stolen truck leads police on a 40 minute high-speed chase. All the while a nine month old baby is in the back seat.

Ohio State Highway Patrol released dash cam video. This all started in Findlay on Saturday. The baby's father says he was picking up his other child when a stranger jumped in his truck and took off.

"I didn't want to wake her up. I know better for next time now. You never think it's going to happen that quick, but it really does. Ten seconds is all it took," said the father.

Joshua Gilliland is charged with grand theft, kidnapping, two counts of assault and child endangering.

The family has two kids, they work and now they don't have a vehicle. The father says his insurance won't cover what happened.
