Grand jury to decide charges in 4 year old's death

- A grand jury will decide if there will be any charges made in the case of a four-year-old child who died after being run over by a vehicle.

It happened at a northeast Harris County daycare.Harris County Sheriff’s investigators say that yesterday afternoon an 81-year-old woman was picking up her grandchild and a neighbor’s child at Katy Learning on Uvalde.

According to deputies the woman started driving off without the four-year-old inside her SUV.

“She didn't notice the child was not inside the vehicle, but was in between the wheel well of the car and the other vehicle. She came out, at the same time and attempted to catch the child from being ran over.”

The deputy says the woman was not able to reach the child in time, in fact when she got out of the vehicle she must have been in such a panic she didn't put it into park and the SUV crashed into the daycare. No one inside was hurt.
