This Houston Mom Is Being Charged After Video Shows Her Running Over and Killing 3-Year-Old Son While Playing a Game

Houston, TX – Surveillance video captured a mom apparently “playing chicken” with her son moments before she killed the 3-year-old with her SUV.

The horrifying incident serves as a reminder to protect children around moving vehicles.

The district attorney’s office believes the young mother was needlessly fooling around when she struck her toddler with her right tire, reports KTRK.

Authorities originally called the tragedy an “unfortunate accident” until the department obtained video footage.

Lexus Stagg, 26, was playing a weird driving game with her son, one where she drove forward and her three children ran out in front of her, reports the Houston Chronicle.
