DALLAS — Tammy Lowe, the woman who is charged with killing a 6-year-old Grand Prairie boy in a hit and run accident, bonded out of the Dallas County Jail on Monday. 

Lowe, 53, exited the Dallas County Jail at about 11 a.m. She clutched few belongings as she walked to a car outside the jail alongside her husband 

A longtime Texas history teacher at Adams Middle School, Lowe turned herself into police last week, five days after investigators said she struck six-year-old John Raidy with her Toyota Yaris and sped away.

She is charged with felony manslaughter and failure to stop and render aid.

Grand Prairie-based attorney Cameron Gray convinced a judge last Friday to lower Lowe's bond from $200,000 to $125,000 but was unable to file paperwork in time for her release. As he promised, he returned Monday and posted bond.  

Lowe has not commented about why she waited five days to turn herself in. Her attorney said she had a good reason, but would not elaborate.
