A young girl was hit by a car while crossing a busy street. She's expected to be okay, but her mother is now in jail for what happened.
Sheriff's deputies tell News 4 the 9-year-old and her little sister were trying to cross FM 78 because their mom wanted them to drop something off at a Money Box check cashing store across the street.
Investigators say the girl just walked out into the street. They said the mom had stayed at home with younger kids.
When the mother got to the scene she was arrested and charged with endangering children.
The mother should also think about doing her own banking.
