TAMPA, Fla. — Police in Florida say an 18-month-old Tampa girl was injured when her mother rammed their car in into a house while trying to run over a man.
Authorities say 29-year-old Tamika Lashaunda Willis did not buckle the child into a car seat when she tried to run over the man, eventually ramming the car into his house.
The St. Petersburg Times reports the baby was thrown into the dashboard multiple times and had a large lump on her forehead when she was taken to the hospital.
Willis is being held without bail in the Hillsborough County Jail on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated child abuse. She’s also being held on a probation violation.
