Man charged after unbuckled toddler fell from truck, breaking arm
A Butler County man is facing charges for driving with a toddler unbuckled on his lap, police said.
State police said there was a car seat in Keith Gordon’s truck, but he didn’t use it. Instead, he allowed his girlfriend’s daughter to ride on his lap as he drove, according to police.
He then put the girl on the passenger’s side floor, police said. She grabbed the door handle as the truck was moving and fell out onto the ground, breaking her arm. She also received a cut on her head.
