Woman Arrested for Allegedly Street Racing With Baby in Car

The 13-month old was reportedly unrestrained in the back seat.

While most tabloid headlines seem outrageous, few are more unbelievable than this Dallas Police report that actually happened on Sunday. Keirra Beatty, 20, was recently arrested by city police for allegedly street racing with her one-year-old child sitting unrestrained in the back seat. She was taken into custody after running into an embankment and eventually hitting a wooden telephone pole at 1:10 a.m. Sunday, according to WFAA8.

The 13-month old was reportedly unhurt and received no visible injuries after being taken to the hospital for evaluation. Beatty was allegedly driving with her child being held by a passenger in the backseat when the wreck occurred on S. Central Expressway at Linfield.

Court reports state that Beatty was traveling in excess of 120 miles per hour, more than 50 MPH over the speed limit. 

The Dallas Police Department released a statement saying that Beatty “knowingly engaged in a street race with another unknown vehicle and failed to properly secure the infant child in a child safety seat.”
