Jessica Liesmann is being hailed as a hero mom after taking on an armed suspect who crashed into her mini van after a dramatic high-speed police chase in Dallas, Texas.
Dallas news reported that Jessica Liesmann confronted a suspect who crashed into the back of her car at a busy intersection in Dallas.
Jessica Liesmann told a local radio station that when the unnamed suspect crashed into the back of her, she turned to her 14-year-old son and asked if he was ok.

The moment he said yes he was, Jessica Liesmann left her damaged car and went right to the drivers side of the stolen car, confronting the man being chased by Dallas cops.
“I jumped out the car and said, ‘What the hell is wrong with you, you’re in a school zone, what are you thinking?’”.
Liesmann told Channel 5 Dallas she reacted with sheer anger, as she lost her 4-year-old son Jaylen to a medical condition in August.
She had just picked up her only surviving son from nearby Forest Meadow Junior High School.
“I was just angry,” she said.
Her 14-year-old son has been released from the hospital after having suffered some bumps and bruises.
The man then pushed Jessica, with her boyfriend then coming to her side.
He began wrestling with the suspect in the street, as Jessica Liesmann helped pin him down until police arrived at the crash scene.
