Lubbock radio station Hot 97.3 is raising money to benefit the baby of a young Lubbock mother killed in a hit and run accident last week.
Jaylyn Lamar Washington was just six weeks old, when his mother was run down in the parking lot of the Lizard Club on 34th Street. Darene Brooks, 19, is charged with aggravated assault and failure to stop and render aid in this case.
"I'm gonna tell him good things because he had a very good mom," said Alice Doss, Jaylyn's grandmother. "She just had him for one month, but that month she had him, she was real good."
Hot 97.3 is set up in the old Albertson's parking lot at 50th and Indiana Avenue. They are gathering monetary donations, baby gear, and clothing for the child.
The live remote will continue broadcasting from that location until about 6 p.m.
