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.”

In the drivers handbook in my state says something about NOT DRIVING WHILE ANGRY OR OVER EMOTIONAL this is why. you lose focus and bad things happen

13 years?? thats malarkey. How can you justify giving more time for killing a young child than an adult in any given situation….Just because it was in a vehicle?
