Jessica Hunt started her car and put it in reverse. She was under the influence of several drugs when she got behind the wheel of her car that day. Jessica ended up backing over her 4 year old son. Justin Oaks was taken to University Medical Center, where he would die from his injuries.
Jessica called 911 at about 5:00 p.m. shortly after she backed over her son. Neighbors said that Jessica was not inside the car when it backed over son, that she had just put the car into reverse and then realized the car had backed over her son and she began to scream and call for 911. When they arrived, she kept yelling at them to hurry.
In June of 2011, Jessica admitted that she had been on Cocaine, Crystal Meth, Methadone and Xanax on the day she backed over Justin. That same month, the Pima County Attorney's Office dropped the charges against Jessica, though they were dropped without prejudice, which means Jessica could face charges at a later date if they decide to charge her.
