Bond reduced for teacher in deadly hit-and-run

Posted: Updated:

The middle school history teacher jailed for the hit-and-run death of a 6-year-old was hoping to get out of jail Friday, but a late development changed that.

Tammy Lowe will spend the weekend in the Dallas County jail because of a technicality in processing her bond. But, her attorney was successful in reducing it from $200,000 to $125,000 for charges of manslaughter and failure to stop and render aid.

Newly released video shows Lowe turning herself in to Grand Prairie police on Tuesday. She walked into the lobby with her husband.

Police said she admitted to slamming into 6-year-old John Raidy with her 2008 Toyota Yaris, killing him. She didn't stop afterward.

Raidy was walking in a crosswalk at the intersection of North Carrier Parkway and Holiday Hills on Jan. 24 with his mother and younger sister.

Lowe was handcuffed as police questioned her about why she waited five days before coming forward.

She handed in her resignation at Adams Middle School in Grand Prairie just before turning herself in.

The case will be referred to the district attorney's office and then it could go to trial.
