HUDSON, FLA. — A Tampa Bay-area woman who authorities say hit a group of young girls with her Jeep — killing one — faces several charges.
The Florida Highway Patrol arrested 39-year-old Betty-Jo Tagerson on Friday and charged her with vehicular homicide, reckless driving and driving involving property damage.
Authorities say Tagerson was upset after an argument with her boyfriend and speeding through the Hudson neighborhood in November. FHP says Tagerson lost control of her jeep and went up on a curb, where she hit the group.
A girl who was part of a set of triplets, 5-year-old Delany Rossman, died a day after the crash. Another triplet sustained critical injuries but recovered. A third sister and a neighbor girl had minor injuries.
Tagerson was being held on $20,000 bail.
