Jury deliberates Grand Prairie hit-and-run case

Posted: Updated:

A jury will resume deliberations Thursday morning in the case of a teacher who killed a six-year-old boy in a hit and run.

Tammy Lowe is on trial for the death of John Raidy in January of last year at an intersection in Grand Prairie.

The former school teacher pleaded not guilty to manslaughter at the start of the trial, but admitted she failed to stop and render aid after she hit the child.

Testimony on Wednesday included pictures of scratches, dents and discoloration found on Lowe's car.

Prosecutors said Lowe ran a light that was red for 13 seconds and she had a clear line of sight and chose to run it.

“She carries him almost a football field, a football field, before she decides to slam her brakes so she can roll him off the hood,” said Justin McCants, prosecutor.

But the defense said she was trying to make it through a yellow light and evidence indicates the incident was an accident.

Lowe turned herself into police five days after the hit and run.
