Coral Springs Woman Tries to Kill Her Kids by Ramming Her Car Into a House, Police Say
As a candidate for worst mother of the year, a Coral Springs woman tried to kill her kids yesterday by plowing her car into a house, police say.
According to Coral Springs police, 46-year-old Jane Gonzalez told her two kids in the back seat of her Ford Mustang to take their seat belts off, then gunned the accelerator into a house near NW 101st Avenue and Riverside Drive.
The Mustang crashed into a concrete wall of the house as well as a garage door.
The good news: No dead kids.
Police didn't release the ages of the kids but say the boy got a cut lip and his sister's chest was bruised as she hit the seat in front of her.
The kids told police that their mother had instructed them to take off their seat belts and that they thought Gonzalez crashed into the house intentionally, according to the cops.
But Gonzalez wasn't going down without a fight, as she hit a cop and tried (unsuccessfully) to grab the gun out of his holster, police say.
Gonzalez was arrested and faces charges of attempted murder, child abuse, and battery on a police officer or firefighter.
