Woman Playing ‘Chicken’ With Her Children Runs Over And Kills Her Three-Year-Old Son With SUV


Lexus Stagg, a 26-year-old mom from Houston, was charged with Criminally Negligent Homicide for fatally striking her three-year-old son with SUV on June 11, authorities said.

The atrocious act was caught on a surveillance camera from an apartment complex. On the video footage, Stagg can be seen getting into a sport utility vehicle and then backing up. As her 3 kids start running after the car, Stagg drives the SUV forward. Two of the youngsters move out of the way, but she fatally strikes the three-year-old with the front of the vehicle.

And that’s not all – Stagg continues to drive forward and runs over her son again. Later she told the police that she thought she hit a speed bump when she was reversing.

The child was taken to the hospital but died due to the severe injuries.

Authorities condemn this act. In a statement, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said: “Cars aren’t toys and playing chicken with your kids isn’t a game.”

And Sean Teare, chief of the Vehicular Crimes Division, said: “You should be playing Peek-A-Boo with a three-year-old instead of forcing him to try and dodge a 5,600 pound deadly weapon.”

If convicted, Stagg faces up to 10 years in jail.
