Mum Playing 'Chicken' Accidentally Kills Three-Year-Old Son
Authorities say a 26-year-old woman who was driving toward her children in an apparent game of "chicken" struck and killed her three-year-old son.
Harris County prosecutors said that a woman from Texas, Lexus Stagg, was charged with criminally negligent homicide on June 11 for the death of her son.
They say surveillance video from an apartment complex shows Stagg getting into a Lincoln Navigator, then backing up.
As her three young children began running after her, she drove the SUV forward. Two children moved out of the way, but the three-year-old was caught under a tire.
District Attorney Kim Ogg said, "cars aren't toys and playing chicken with your kids isn't a game."
Stagg was booked into the Harris County jail but was no longer being held Saturday.
It's not clear whether she has an attorney to speak on her behalf.
