26-year-old Tonisha Lashay Barker leaped into traffic while holding her 21-month-old infant. A trucker later reported a “large object” hit his trailer after falling from the overpass. The bodies of the woman and the infant were found on Interstate I-40 not long after.

It is being reported that Barker was upset about losing her job at the coronavirus testing center and had ran her car into a gas pump attempting to cause an explosion moments before taking the life of herself and her child.
