Peg Broadcasting News Thursday September 21, 2017

A one-year-old Memphis boy is fighting for his life after his mother ran over him twice with her vehicle while fleeing from the child's abusive father. It began around 3 a.m. Wednesday morning when the baby's father fired at least one shot at the mother. The woman fled the home and managed to get herself and the child in a car and was driving away when the baby fell out of the vehicle. The mother accidentally ran over child and apparently was unaware of what happened until witnesses who had gathered outside began screaming "you ran over the baby!" The baby was rushed to Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in critical condition. The mother also suffered injuries from the domestic assault. It is not clear what charges may be brought against the father.
