Betty Jo Tagerson is charged with vehicular homicide in the case.

The triplets were all playing in their Hudson front yard in November of 2010, when deputies say Betty Jo Tagerson drove into the yard and hit and killed Delaney Rossman. Her triplet sister, Gabrielle, was seriously injured along with another friend. The third triplet, Isabella, was not seriously injured.

The triplets were 5 years old at the time. Now Isabella and Gabrielle are telling jurors about that day. Additionally, their friend who was injured in the crash, Marissa Manuli, also testified Tuesday.

Tagerson's lawyer claims she suffered a medical condition that causes blackouts, and her first episode took place the day of the accident.
