TRAGEDY STRIKES FAMILY BIRTHDAY PARTY 

What was supposed to be a day full of birthday fun turned out to be a day of tragedy for one family in Maine.

According to reports, 17-month-old Tiannah Sevey died on Saturday, September, 23, after being struck by her mother’s SUV.

The incident reportedly occurred during a family birthday party.

A Birthday Party Nightmare:

It was reported that Taneisha Thomas, 27, was having a birthday party for her 10-year-old daughter.

The Lewiston Police Department suspects that Thomas was backing up when her 2004 Mercury Mountaineer struck the toddler.

Tiannah was transported to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, Maine, but tragically, she later succumbed to her injuries.

Lewiston Police spokesman, Lt. David St. Pierre, also revealed that there will be an ongoing investigation regarding the toddler’s death despite the situation being classified as an accident.

While at the scene, investigators gave Thomas a blood testa and Although the incident was an accident and the blood test is a standard procedure, unfortunately – there is a reason why the mother is being investigated.

Apparently, Thomas has a disheartening past with alcohol that previously led to charges against her.

Then to make things worse, there’s a weird connection between the two incidents.

Like the latest incident involving the death of her daughter, Thomas had a motor vehicle accident in from of her home back in 2013.

According to Maine State Bureau of Identification records, Thomas was in fact convicted of operating under the influence after hitting a parked car in front of her home.

At the time of the accident, her blood alcohol level was 0.27 percent. In addition to the charge for that incident, she is also facing another OUI charge.

As a result of the charge, Thomas’ license was suspended on August 17. However, she had been granted a conditional license, which isn’t set to expire until October 7. No charges have been filed against Thomas.

But she does have a hearing regarding her license suspension this week. It has also been reported that the’ results of Thomas’ blood test could take weeks to return.

A GoFundMe account has also been established for the toddler’s funeral expenses.
