Woman Runs Over Two Childen
MISSION- A mission woman who ran over two children with her car is heading to county jail after an arraignment Monday afternoon. Essex De La Cruz is accused of the act that happened on Sunday off the 3200 Anita Street.
According to police, one child is still in the hospital with internal injuries while the other has been released. Police said De La Cruz was giving her kids and others a ride around the block after helping her clean the house.
Some children were on top of the hood of the car when she slammed the brakes to avoid hitting a child who crossed in front of her.
"Well something like this a child falls off a vehicle whether those children were hurt or not that still places children in harms way so..endangering your children there," said Jody Tittle of Mission Police Department.
De La Cruz has two charges of injury to a child, a third degree felony and her bond is set at $50,000.
