KSP urges drivers to 'look before you leave' vehicle after 2-year-old's death

CRITTENDEN, KY (FOX19) - Kentucky State Police are urging drivers to 'look before you leave' after a 2-year-old was found unresponsive in a vehicle.

'Look before you leave' means to check your vehicle to ensure you don't leave a child behind inside.

KSP says they received a 911 call about a child found in a car around 6 p.m. Saturday at 5 Big Bear Circle in Crittenden.

When they arrived, officers say they found the toddler unresponsive and she was taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Grant County where she was pronounced dead.

While on the scene, KSP says a trooper attempted life saving measures that were unsuccessful.

Dry Ridge Post spokesperson Trooper Charles Loudermilk says they have no plans to release the child's name Sunday.

Loudermilk says officers are waiting until the autopsy is completed to determine if charges will be filed. He also says officers have no information on if the person that found the child is related.

It is unclear if the child was left in the vehicle of if she got in on her own, Loudermilk said.
