Women Charged After 14-Month-Old Falls From Car

Two women are ticketed after a 14-month-old baby falls from a moving car in North Platte. Police say a 31-year-old Hershey woman was driving when the child fell from the car Saturday morning as the car was turning.

The baby was unharmed, but was taken to a local hospital for precautionary reasons. The mother of the baby, a North Platte woman, was a passenger in the car.

Both the women were ticketed on suspicion of child abuse. The women told police the child was buckled in when the accident happened, but witnesses told police that was not true.
