Ebony Roby, 25, was arrested on Saturday and accused of child threats
A woman from Missouri was Saturday accused of a first-degree childhood illness after her two-year-old son fell from her car, was hit by a truck and died.
It remains unclear how little Elijah Roby was removed from the vehicle in the county of St. Louis on Friday afternoon.
Immediately after the incident, mother Ebony Roby put the boy back in the engine, drove to a Shell gas station on Lucas and Hunt and called 911.
The Jennings Station Road (near Interstate 70) incident was reported at 16.48 and the child was rushed to hospital in critical condition.
Sergeant Shawn McGuire told KMOX News Friday: & # 39; The driver of the vehicle remained on site. They work together with researchers. Detectives try to bring the scene together, while they try to interview as many witnesses as possible. & # 39;
However, the boy has not saved it.
The parent sat behind the bars on Saturday after working with the St. Louis County police.
She was given a $ 50,000 guarantee as the office for crimes against people investigated, reported KMOV.
Roby's school friend posted on a GoFundMe page said up to raise $ 10,000 for the family, with sympathy for the detained woman.
