BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) - A 25-year-old Shreveport mother has been charged with negligent homicide after she was involved in a car crash that killed her 6-year-old son.

Bossier City police say Quirtisha Allen was arrested Thursday in connection with a Sept. 20, 2014, crash that killed her son, Serdario Thomas Jr.

Police say Thomas was in the front seat of his mother’s car and was not wearing a seat belt. Police say Allen collided with another vehicle.

Police and prosecutors say they decided to charge the mother after determining she was driving at a high speed when she crashed.

Allen was booked into the Bossier City Jail and later transferred to the Bossier Parish Maximum Security Facility. Her bond was set at $45,000.

It was unknown if she has an attorney.
