On Highway 45 in between Union City and Kenton. (Closer to Kenton.) Almost right in front of Texas Gas.
Even more sad

What was going through this woman's head when she put her babies in the car without caring if they got killed? According to police on the scene, these two precious children weren't in any type of restraints and were thrown from the vehicle. She should be charged with manslaughter! I truly hope and pray for this woman's recovery but she obviously didn't care about her babies at all!
Please protect ur babies

Was this tragic mom on drugs or just didn't care? Police at the scene said her two babies weren't even in any type of protective safety restraints and were both thrown from the vehicle to their deaths. One is still barely alive but the ten month old died instantly. Why do some people have to learn everything the hard way? So very sad and tragic. If the mom recovers, she'll be charged with manslaughter.

seriously people stop this thread was to find out what happened not bad mouth her in any way

i understand what you have said and agree if she did not put her kids in seat belts then that was a mistake and how many of you are guilty of the same thing i admit i have not buckled my kids in once or twice but no one is bad mouthing me or anyone of you who did the same so please think about the family before saying such harsh things its better to not to say things when you should shut your mouth

p.s i live within a mile of where this happened and there is a horrified and saddened aurora in the air arround here now because not only did this affect the family it also affects this area

oh and one more thing how many people are going to have to die form Texas Gas to Kenton city limits thats 2 major wrecks in the past year thats taken lives

so i say either more troopers to stop speeders or reducing the speed limit to 45 from Texas Gas to Kenton and if you dont like 45 the maybe you dont care about others lives or the people who live on this highway when it sounds like a jet passes by because the idiot driving is doing 70 hehe maybe the speed camera trucks would put a stop to it seems to have worked in union city for the most part

Speak for yourself. No, not all of us have taken that one chance and failed to restrain a baby while in a moving vehicle. That woman is no better than any other mom that abuses their child. I hope she's haunted everyday for the rest of her sorry life.

For one, an infant and a 2 year old belong in car seats, not seat belts. In fact, according to the AAP, they should both still be rear facing but legally the baby was supposed to.

And for two, I'll judge you all day for not putting your kids in an age appropriate seat. Unless you had kids in the 60s or early 70s, there's no excuse. In fact, police departments will give you a basic seat for free.

God bless that family though, for everything they're going through.

Plz, we all hope that rather than paying attention to the Sad Aura, you have actually learned a lesson from this tragedy....put your kids in an appropriate car seat EVERY TIME, pay attention on the road and DON'T drink and drive. No passing of judgement here...just a bunch of folks that speak the truth about this situation....and if the same thing happens to you, then God bless your family because they burden of guilt is on you.

Also, the paper didn't indicate that the mother was under the influence, it was the driver of the Ford.

She was under the influence of drugs. I hope she goes to jail and sits in solitary confinement! Thinking of the kid she killed. She couldn't afford to put her kids in carseats, but she could afford to buy that Oxycontin and Xanax. Loser.

No, it was the driver of the Ford SUV. The way it was written I had to read it 3 times to be sure.
