A mother in Texas, United States, was arrested for allegedly abandoning her 10-year-old child at a busy intersection in over 100-degree weather — for accidentally dropping food in her car.

Responding to an alert about a minor walking alone under an overpass during “heavy traffic time,” authorities found the unnamed child at a nearby gas station last Saturday, June 8.

When asked about why she did not report the incident to the police, the mother said it was due to her driver’s license being invalid.
