The 40-year-old woman is now in jail after running over triplets, killing one and injuring the others!

Betty-Jo Tagerson, 40, is convicted of vehicular homicide, culpable negligence manslaughter and two counts of reckless driving with serious injury after running over 5-year-old triplets as they played in their front yard, according to The Daily Mail.

The woman was upset after an argument with her boyfriend and sped through the neighborhood in a vehicle with bad breaks and bald tires. The car was in such poor condition, she used a bungee cord to close the driver door.

Betty-Jo lost control of her Jeep, went up on a curb and hit a group of kids playing. She hit the 5-year-old triplets, a neighbor girl and a friend, Marissa Manuli. All of the girls sustained injuries, and one triplet, Delany Rossman, died.

“The sentence I receive today will not bring sweet Delaney back, nor will it help her family forgive my decision to get in the car that day, but I am truly sorry for what’s happened,” Betty-Jo said in court. “Feelings of regret and sadness have haunted me. Still, more than a year later, I cannot stop thinking about the little girl who I personally knew.”
