KIMT News 3 — While distracted driving can kill on the road, being distracted once you get out of your car, can be just as dangerous.
A five month old girl died in Moorhead yesterday after she was left in a mini-van for hours.
Law enforcement leaders tell us to never leave your kids in the car, especially once the weather heats up, because conditions can change quickly.
“The humidity and the sun and all of those things come into play,” Mower County Sheriff Terese Amazi said. “So, certainly, and typically it’s a parking lot so that asphalt is very hot as well. And that car goes from 50 to 90 very quickly.”
Amazi says if you can, you should find someone to watch your kids if you need to run a quick errand.
