DALLAS (AP) — A grand jury in Dallas has indicted a former teacher in a hit and run accident that killed a 6-year-old boy in January.

Tammy Lowe is charged with failure to stop and render aid and manslaughter.

Lowe's attorney, Cameron Gray, told the Dallas Morning News (http://bit.ly/108gfdN ) Friday that the indictment did not surprise him, but he hopes the district attorney will dismiss the charges once he learns all the facts.

Grand Prairie Police said John Raidy was crossing a street when a vehicle ran a red light and struck him as his mother and sister watched. Lowe, a 53-year-old middle school teacher, turned herself in several days later. Lowe remained free on bond.

Grand Prairie is a suburb west of Dallas.
