A local Houston mother has been charged in connection to her son’s death.
18-year-old Gissel Vazquez was charged with child endangerment after her 1-year-old child was hit and killed by a vehicle.
Per a police report, the incident happened around 1:15 pm. On Wednesday on the corner of Tierwester Street and Dixie Drive in Southeast Houston.
It was said that the young boy was following Vazquez through the parking lot when a white Chevrolet Impala backed out and hit the child.
Prosecutors say, Vazquez left the child unattended and that’s why she is being charged in relation to her son’s death.
