Video shows teacher accused in deadly hit-and-run

Posted: Updated:
GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas -

A student of the Grand Prairie teacher accused in a fatal hit-and-run said she seemed distracted, frustrated and on edge after the accident.

Cameron Humphries shot video of his seventh grade history teacher at John Adams Middle School. A day later, 53-year-old Tammy Lowe resigned and turned herself in to police.

"She was in class Monday," he said. "To be honest, yeah she was nervous and she kept on forgetting every different thing."

He noticed she went as far as removing family photos from her work space.

"We saw that she did take down pictures of her daughters," Humphries said.

Lowe admitted to police she was driving home in her black Toyota Yaris when she slammed into 6-year-old John Raidy, killing him.

The accident happened a week ago at the intersection of North Carrier Parkway and Holiday Hills in Grand Prairie. Raidy was crossing the street with his mother and younger sister.

Lowe never stopped to check on the child.

She is still in the Grand Prairie jail and is expected to remain there until at least Friday. Afterward she could be transferred to the Lew Sterrett Justice Center in Dallas County.

But, defense attorney Cameron Gray said he is trying to get her $200,000 bond lowered so that she can return home while awaiting trial for manslaughter and failure to stop and render aid.
