Mom Pushes Toddler Out Of Moving Car To Get Reaction From Dad: Cops

A Louisiana mom was jailed Sunday after allegedly pushing her toddler from a moving car to get a reaction from the girl's father.

Lasasha Allen, 23, told the child's father on Saturday that their 20-month-old daughter was injured after falling out of the car window, despite this having not happened, reports. The father didn't seem to care, so the Winnsboro woman decided to actually injure the child and see if that would raise more of a response from the man, according to the Franklin Parish Sheriff's Office.

On Sunday, Allen took the toddler, along with the toddler's 7-year-old sibling, for a drive on a curvy road in a rural area. Deputies say she accelerated to a speed of 45 miles per hour before opening the passenger side door and shoving the girl out of the car.

“She thought going around the curve the child would only receive minor injuries and she would get the attention she wanted and prove she was not lying,” Franklin Parish Sheriff Kevin Cobb told The News Star.

The toddler's injuries were so severe that she ended up having to be airlifted to a hospital, KTBS reports. She is now in stable condition.

Allen was charged with second-degree attempted murder. Her five other children were placed in protective custody.
