Houston residents didn’t seek to help injured children in a car accident Wednesday, but instead bypassed their dead mother to loot the vehicle of groceries.

“Why would you take somebody’s stuff who got hit by a car? That’s crazy, that’s mean,” local resident Troy Lamerson said, the Houston Chronicle reported Friday.

The 23-year-old mother was pronounced dead at the scene, and her sons, ages 4 and 6, remain in the hospital with broken bones, Houston Police Department spokesman Victor Senties told the Chronicle. The woman lost control of her SUV while driving at a high rate of speed, which then hit a Mercedes at 5:00 p.m. Thursday, the paper reported.

But Savannah Roberts, who lives close to the scene of the accident, said she was not surprised.

“There is a lot of people you just can’t trust,” local resident Savannah Roberts said, the Chronicle reported. “I’ve seen worse in this area.”
