Teacher accused in deadly hit-and-run wants her car back

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS -

Attorneys for the Grand Prairie teacher accused of running down a 6-year-old boy in a deadly hit-and-run are trying to get the indictments thrown out.

Tammy Lowe turned herself in days after the Jan. 24 crash that killed John Raidy as he crossed the street on North Carrier Parkway with his family.

Lowe was indicted on charges of failure to stop and render aid and manslaughter.

At a news conference on Thursday, her attorneys said they filed a motion to dismiss indictments against her. They said the district attorney's officer ignored their requests to present a packed of information to the grand jury.

Assistant District Attorney Heath Harris called it an inadvertent mistake. He said the indictments would be thrown out and the case would be sent back to a grand jury to give the defense a chance to present its case.

Lowe also wants her car back. It's been at the county impound lot for more than a month. Her attorneys argued all the pictures and evidence needed have been seized so she should be able to get it back so she can drive to work and do other things.
