8-Year-Old Crashes Mother’s Stolen Car Killing 6-Year-Old Sister
Half an hour after putting her two children to bed, a Phoenix mother discovered they were gone. Frantic and fearful they had been kidnapped, she called police, who spotted her car near her apartment and tried to pull it over.
After it swerved and crashed into a pole, police discovered the driver was the woman’s 8-year-old son, and her 6-year-old daughter was a front-seat passenger.
The girl died Thursday of injuries suffered in Wednesday night’s crash, while her brother suffered an ankle injury that didn’t appear serious, police said.
Police identified the girl as Aaliyah Felder. They said her seatbelt wasn’t fastened and the air bag in front of her didn’t deploy.
Police did not release the names of the 24-year-old mother or her son.
Sgt. Steve Martos said police did not know some details about what happened, including what prompted the children to go on the drive and how they got the car keys.
Police have not spoken to the boy at length so they don’t know why he was out driving the family car.
This lady has some ‘splainin’ to do…
“There’s really no criminal element to any of it,” Martos said. “From mom’s standpoint, there’s nothing to indicate any neglect or abuse. From the kid’s point, he’s 8 years old so his mental state is not culpable.”
After the crash, two patrol officers ran up to the crashed car, “thinking it’s a kidnap, that there’s a bad guy in there,” Martos said.
Instead, they found the children in their pajamas and the girl seriously injured.
No evidence of neglect??? How the hell didn’t this broad know that her children had left the house IN HER CAR?!? SMMFH
