A mother in Northwest Houston had a disagreement with her baby’s father and decided instead of letting it go; she would chase him down to continue the argument.
She lost her life in the meantime.
On-the-scene officers say the mother was at fault for driving recklessly trying to pursue her baby’s father. She also endangered the baby who survived the crash and is currently in the hospital.

She was allegedly chasing the person she was arguing with at a high rate of speed on Greens Parkway when she hit a curb, lost control of her car and crashed into a tree.
While her family paced the scene in shock at what had just happened, there was relief that another life was not lost.
“There was a child in the vehicle that was transported to the hospital, but should be OK. The child was in a child safety seat,” said Sgt. G.T. Hall with the Houston Police Department.
The car she was chasing turned around and came back to help, but authorities pronounced her dead when they got there.
The child, who was in a car seat in the back, was taken to the hospital to be checked out, but is expected to be OK.
Houston police say it looks like the victim was at fault. The person she was chasing hasn’t been identified, but KTRK was told he is related to the child.
Hopefully, this is a lesson to many young families out there who feel they have to win an argument to hurt the other person. If you find yourself in an abusive relationship, find a way to leave. You might feel you have to stay, but you don’t. An abusive relationship can be anywhere from physical abuse to verbal abuse that ends in mental abuse.
Life is too short, and in the case of this incident, this mother will not be there to raise her baby because she had to run down her baby’s father. It’s not worth it.
