WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (WAVY) - Williamsburg Police responded to the area of Nassau Street and Prince George Street Tuesday morning for a call about an infant left in a hot car.
Parking enforcement personnel discovered the 10-month-old female infant alone in a vehicle that was not running, around 11 a.m. When officers arrived, the baby was sweating, crying and initially appeared to be in some distress, according to Major Greg Riley with the WPD.
The infant's father returned to the vehicle within minutes of the child being discovered and was identified as 24-year-old Gregory Crawford of James City County. Crawford was arrested and charged with felony child neglect before he was transported to the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail, where he was held on a $3,000 bond.
The baby did not need medical attention after the incident and was released to her mother at the scene.
A routine traffic stop in Chesapeake resulted in a three-city pursuit Friday morning.
Wet weather is expected to move into the area over the weekend, forcing some areas to cancel or change their holiday events.
Four vehicles were involved in a crash on Route 17 in Gloucester Friday morning.
