Bristol, Connecticut, police have issued a misdemeanor summons to a mom who they say left her 11-year-old daughter in the car while she went into a store Tuesday.

Police arrived at 60 Middle Street in Bristol to find the girl alone in the car with the windows rolled up. She was alert and responsive and told officers she had asked to stay in the car while her mom ran inside, according to police.

Police said the outside temperature was about 85 degrees and the car’s interior “was not excessively hot.”

The girl’s mother, 30-year-old Christina Williams, was issued a misdemeanor summons for leaving a child unsupervised in a motor vehicle.

Six children in the U.S. have died this month after being left in hot cars, including a 15-month-old boy from Ridgefield.
