Police: Mom Charged After Letting Girl Crawl Across Railroad Tracks


MANOR, Pa.,None - Manor police have charged a 41-year-old they said allowed her 2-year-old daughter to crawl across a set of railroad tracks twice.

A Manor officer said he spotted Kimberly Troilo and her toddler crossing the tracks last month instead of using a nearby underpass. The officer said he warned Troilo not to do it again and let her off with a warning.

About three weeks later, the officer said he saw Troilo and the tot crossing the tracks again, so he arrested her and charged her with endangering the welfare of a child and defiant trespass.

Troilo told police she didn't want to use the underpass because it’s muddy, and her daughter fell the last time.

Troilo’s husband, Lamont Wilford, said lots of residents cross the tracks.

“She has a good job, we take care of our kids,” Wilford said. "The policeman said she's endangering my child's life. We take good care of our kids. I don't know what that's about."

Troilo has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Nov. 1.
