Child Protective Services spokeswoman Marissa Gonzales said Little T’s Tiny Tots daycare chose to close temporarily while state officials investigate Benjamin Price’s heatstroke death.
Erica Hooks, the daycare’s van driver, was arrested Thursday and charged with injury to a child. She’s being held on $50,000 bond in the Dallas County jail. No attorney for her is listed in jail records.
Police say Hooks drove a group of children from the daycare center to a movie July 20, but the 3-year-old didn’t leave the van upon their return.
The Dallas Morning News (http://dallasne.ws/NAlY94) reports the boy was found in the van 2 1/2 hours later.Share on Facebook
