Simone Davis, the boy’s grandmother, said: “I don’t know if I’ll lose him today or tomorrow.
Simone’s daughter, Autrey Davis, was killed after a Harris County deputy collided with her while pursuing a suspected criminal on January 12. The impact of the collision was on the driver’s side. Autrey’s car, and her 3-year-old son, Kyle Johnson, were strapped in the back seat, according to her family.
Autrey’s 2-year-old daughter was tied to the car seat behind the passenger’s back. The 2-year-old is now at home with her family, but her grandmother feels heartbroken every time she says Autrey’s name.
“I know she’s not coming back. The babies are so young, and right now is when they need their parents,” Simone said.
Autrey’s life was one of four recent crashes involving local law enforcement, three of which were responding to a call. In each case, speed plays an important role.
“I feel like I can avoid that,” says Simone.
The family will be represented by nationally renowned civil rights attorney Ben Crump, who will work alongside Houston attorney Andy Rubenstein.
“We (want) to change policy. We (want) to change the culture … we want to change the institutions,” Rubenstein said.
As Autrey’s son remains in critical condition and is on a ventilator, her family has the daunting task of planning her funeral.
ONE GoFundMe was established to help cover funeral expenses as well as medical expenses for Kyle’s recovery.
