(Newser) – An attempt to avert a tragedy ends with one: After spotting a preschooler get behind the wheel of a van, start it, and put it in gear, a woman ran outside to stop the car—while holding her newborn in her arms. The 4-year-old driver ran over the mother and child, killing the 3-week old. The mother, whose relationship to the young driver has not been released, has been hospitalized near Fort Worth, Texas, reports the AP.
