Tammy Lowe, 53, faces charges of manslaughter and failure to stop and render aid. She was released after posting $125,000 bail.

Her attorney Cameron Gray, couldn't be reached for comment. But Gray released a press release to KTVT/CBS11 saying: "Our client, Tammy Lowe, would like to express her deep sorrow to the family of John Raidy for their tragic loss. In the days ahead her legal team will attempt to resolve her legal problems by discussion with the Dallas County District Attorney."

Lowe was a seventh-grade social studies teacher at Adams Middle School. She walked into a police station and surrendered to police on Jan. 29

John Raidy was a student at Austin Elementary School. Raidy was crossing North Carrier Parkway at Holiday Hills Drive at about 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 24 when he was hit by a southbound vehicle that ran the red light. The vehicle "stopped briefly" but then fled the scene, police said.
