Tow Truck Hauls Away SUV Near Mall With Two Toddlers Still Inside

From a Washington Post story by Salvador Rizzo headlined “Tow truck hauls away SUV near Va. mall with toddlers still inside”:

A tow-truck driver hauled away an SUV parked outside the Pentagon City mall Tuesday morning with two toddlers inside, and police cited the driver who had left the children in the car.

The 26-year-old woman called police shortly after 11 a.m., reporting that her car had been stolen while her children, ages 3 and 1, were inside. Police said that the vehicle was towed because it was in a no-parking zone and that a “preliminary investigation indicates the tow operator was unaware the children were inside and upon notification, pulled over to check on them.”
