only in texas? mother throws kids to freeway
« on: March 12, 2008, 04:30:25 PM »

CNN reports that : A woman threw her two struggling young children from a freeway overpass during Wednesday's morning rush before leaping off herself, police said, but all three survived the 22-foot fall into traffic.

Ricky Dallas rolls across the overpass where a woman threw her two young children onto the interstate.

 Khandi Busby, 27, and her sons, ages 8 and 6, were hospitalized in stable condition, said police Sr. Cpl. Kevin Janse. They are well enough to speak with investigators, police said.

All three landed on concrete in the far left lane of westbound Interstate 30 at about 6:30 a.m.

"It was really miraculous that we didn't have some fatalities with this incident," said police Sgt. Gil Cerda. "At this particular time, there is very heavy traffic and it is fast-moving."

Police believe Busby and the 8-year-old were struck by cars. There were no car accidents on the interstate below, Cerda said.

Busby could face two charges of attempted capital murder, Cerda said.

Janse said Busby and her sons were in a car with her father, heading to a friend's house. When they stopped for gas, she took the boys to the overpass while her father was paying for the fuel, Janse said.
