An Ohio mom allegedly drove in front of an oncoming UPS truck on purpose — killing her young daughter and injuring her son, authorities said.
Kia Ferguson, 37, was indicted Wednesday by a grand jury in connection to the deadly collision in January on Interstate 90 in Mentor, news station WOIO reported.
She pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder, attempted aggravated murder and other charges.
Police said the mom “intentionally pulled in front of the semi-truck” before the vehicle slid down an embankment.
Her daughter, Jia, died at the scene while her 6-year-old son required treatment in the intensive care unit at Cleveland’s MetroHealth Hospital, WOIO reported.
Authorities declined to comment on the evidence used to indict the mom for purposely causing the crash, Cleveland.com reported.
Ferguson has been released on bond and is expected to appear in court next on Oct. 23.
