In one of the most disturbing stories you read this week, a woman was killed in an accident after the SUV she was driving struck a tree and that's when thieves seized the opportunity to steal groceries out of her SUV.

Houston Police say the mother of two young boys was driving an SUV that hit another car causing her vehicle to smash into a tree. The mother, who was not restrained in the vehicle, died upon impact. Her two kids, ages 4 and 6, were taken to a nearby medical facility and treated. The kids are expected to survive.

To make this story more disappointing, eyewitnesses tell police that before any emergency crews arrived on the scene, people were climbing into the SUV to steal groceries that were in the front seat. All of this while the woman was dead in the vehicle and her children restrained in their car seats.
