Cops: Baby injured when mom tries to run over man

Police in Florida say an 18-month-old Tampa girl was injured when her mother rammed their car in into a house while trying to run over a man.

Authorities say 29-year-old Tamika Lashaunda Willis did not buckle the child into a car seat when she tried to run over the man, eventually ramming the car into his house.

The St. Petersburg Times ( http://bit.ly/tCpGx2) reports the baby was thrown into the dashboard multiple times and had a large lump on her forehead when she was taken to the hospital.

Willis is being held without bail in the Hillsborough County Jail on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated child abuse. She's also being held on a probation violation.
