Cleveland, OH—A car repo company took off with a car they were repossessing with a sleeping 4-year-old in the backseat and drug the boy’s mother about 30 houses behind the car. The Keeping it Moving car dealership repossessed the car on Monday, September 21, 2009, as reported by WOIO.
According to reports, Keeping it Moving car dealership came to repossess Salimah Tutsone’s car, when the company took off with the car with Tutsone’s 4-year-old boy sleeping in the backseat of the car. Tutsone’s sister said she called the car company and notified them that the car payment was on the way. The car company towed the car anyways. The repo company then backed into Tutsone, while she was holding her 1-year-old baby, and dragged her and the baby nearly 30 houses while she screamed that her son was in the backseat. The repo driver later abandoned the car about five miles away with the boy still inside the car by himself. Tutsone was taken to the Cleveland Clinic for injuries she sustained after the repo driver ran her over. It is unknown if the boy or the 1-year-old were injured. Police officials are reportedly investigating the incident.
