Mother charged with neglect after son was killed by truck

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A surburban West Palm Beach mother remains behind bars accused of aggravated child neglect. This after her 3-year-old son was struck and killed by a truck last week.

Twenty-two-year-old Heidi Rodgriguez faced a judge Thursday morning. Investigators say her son, Christian, was playing unsupervised outside of their home near Forest Hill Boulevard and Jog Road.

According to a police report, a neighbor told investigators she often saw Rodriguez's children playing in the street.

Rodriquez is being held on $1,000 bond. No charges are expected against the driver of the truck.
