Tammy Lowe, 53, a teacher at Adams Middle School in Grand Prairie, Texas, turned herself in today to the Grand Prairie police and confessed to being the driver of a fatal hit-and-run that killed 6-year-old John Paul Raidy around 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 24.
John Raidy’s mom, Lauren Raidy, was present at the scene and watched helplessly as the horrific accident unfolded. Afterwards, the mom called on the hit-and-run driver to “grow a conscience and turn yourself in” according to The Daily Mail.
Lauren Raidy along with her son John and his younger sister had just left a local candy store in Grand Prairie, Texas on Jan. 24 when “a car sped through the red light and struck and killed her son, John Paul Raidy, before callously honking at her - and then zooming away.”
Grand Prairie police Sgt. Eric Hansen said that it was one of the most horrific accident scenes he’d ever seen.

Young John Raidy died at Arlington Memorial Hospital.
Tammy Lowe is currently being detained at Dallas County jail and has been charged with failure to stop and render aid and for injury to a child according to The Dallas Observer. Her bond was set at $100,000.
Before turning herself in to the authorities, “she left a note at Adams Middle School announcing her resignation.”
The broken hearted mom said:
“On the worst day you were having, he could look at you and smile and he would look at you and say ‘I love you,’ and it would make everything better.”
