According to officials, a man knocked her to the ground and ran her over as they left the scene. Horrifically, her son was still in the backseat as the man stole her car, that's where Volkswagen comes into play.
REFUSAL TO HELP
Sherriff contacted Volkswagen directly and requested their help. The woman's vehicle was equipped with a GPS tracker and law enforcement was seeking assistance from the car company to help track down the car which still had the woman's baby inside.
Astonishingly, the company refused.
According to detectives, "Volkswagen Car-Net wanted $150 to restart the service because the mother hadn't made a recent payment." Eventually, officials had to comply and the payment was sent to Volkswagon.
The SUV with the baby in the backseat was finally located after Volkswagon received a payment. Volkswagen told CBS MoneyWatch in a statement that it takes customer safety seriously and is "addressing the situation."
