Teacher turns herself in for deadly hit-and-run

GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas -

Police in Grand Prairie said they finally have the person responsible for killing a 6-year-old boy in custody.

Tammy Lowe, a seventh grade middle school teacher at Adams Middle School in Grand Prairie, reportedly turned herself in to police Tuesday morning.

John Paul Raidy died last Thursday evening after he was hit by an SUV that ran a red light at North Carrier Parkway near Crosswinds High School. He had been walking in a crosswalk with his mother, who was pushing his younger sister in a stroller.

The 53-year-old Lowe reportedly told police she didn't stop because she was scared and panicked.

Police upgraded one charge against Lowe. She was charged with injury to a child, that has been upgraded to manslaughter.  The other charge, failure to stop and render aid will stand.

The Grand Prairie Independent School District said Lowe resigned Tuesday morning.
