A 19-year-old Colorado Springs woman who tried to run down her brother with a car instead hit a toddler in a stroller, according to police. Natasha K. Morris appeared in court Wednesday to be advised of her rights.
Colorado Springs police have recommended she be charged with felony criminal mischief, child abuse and reckless endangerment. The incident happened Monday night at a house in the 3100 block of Knotwood Drive, in the southeastern part of the city. Morris had come to the house to pick up her cousin, but got into a fight with her 17-year-old brother, according to a police report. Investigators believe Morris got back into her car, then sped up the driveway at her brother, who was able to jump out of the way, according to police. Morris’ car rammed into a Mazda parked in the driveway, then through a closed garage door and hit the inside garage wall. A 16-month-old in a stroller in front of the Mazda was hit, and ended up under Morris’ car, police said. The child suffered minor injuries and was not taken to the hospital. Morris told investigators “that she was trying to scare her brother,” police said. She is free on $1,000 bond.
