Texarkana Police lock up woman for child endangerment

TEXARKANA, Tx. - The Texarkana Texas Police Department have arrested Hope, Arkansas woman for three counts of Endangering a Child.
 
Yvette Eason, 30,  was involved in a motor vehicle crash in the 3500 block of North Stateline Ave. back on March 1. 

Eason was driving a 2007 Jeep Cherokee when she pulled into the path of a southbound 2008 Honda Accord as she attempted to exit a business parking lot. 

When the vehicles collided, the rear of Eason’s vehicle spun around and caused a six year old girl to be ejected from the vehicle through the unsecured rear window. 

The child was thrown onto the road and came to rest in the northbound traffic lane of Stateline Ave.  She was transported to Wadley Regional Medical Center for emergency treatment by LifeNet EMS.
 
Investigators determined that the victim, along with two other girls, aged two and three years old, had been sitting in the rear cargo area of the vehicle at the time of the crash. 

The children were not properly restrained, nor were there any child safety seats in the vehicle.
 
On Friday Eason was arrested without incident at a business in Texarkana. 

Eason is currently being held in the Bi-State Jail, where her bond has been set at $300,000.
