A tragic incident in Springfield is worth a mention here as a warning to other parents and the public. An 11-month-old girl died after being left in an unattended SUV for an extended period of time June 26 in the 6400 block of Meriwether Lane.
A preliminary investigation revealed the child’s father placed her in the rear seat of the SUV at his Springfield home and inadvertently left her there while he used another vehicle to run errands, the FCPD reports. After returning home, he then drove the SUV to an in-home daycare to pick up another child when he realized the 11-month-old was still in the back seat.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will determine the exact cause and manner of death.
Detectives have consulted with the Fairfax County Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney, and no charges are expected to be placed in this case.
