The mother who was separated from her baby girl for an entire morning admits she never should have left her child alone in the car. Lashanna Hailey stopped for a soda at the Texaco gas station at 1110 North Sam Houston Parkway West Monday around 1 a.m.
Hailey said she was driving home from a friend’s house and got thirsty. She left the keys in the ignition and her 8-month-old sleeping in a car seat while parked at the gas station. “The door swung open, and I ran out. He sat in there, and threw it in reverse,” explained Lashanna Hailey. “I jumped on the car. I was pulling at the door to get her out.
