Toddler in traffic Williamsburg
WILLIAMSBURG-There were frightening moments for people in a Williamsburg neighborhood as they watched a toddler walking in traffic.
Police say people called Saturday afternoon about the two-year-old boy alone in the 400 block of Merrimac Trail.
"Witnesses reported that the 2-year-old toddler left his residence, crossed over a Merrimac Trail to the entrance of Parkway Apartments, ran in front of a truck and was heading back across the road when he was stopped by a passerby," Maj. Greg Riley told WVEC.com.
The child was back at home by the time police arrived, but officers investigated the incident. That led to the arrest of 28-year-old Audrey A. Wright. She's charged with abuse and neglect of children.
The child wasn't hurt.
