WEST HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Police responded to a parking lot at 140 Kane St., and after further investigation it was found that the child left in the running vehicle was able to put the vehicle in drive.

The car struck two parked vehicles, causing very minor damage. According to police, the child was not injured.

Chicas was located a couple of aisles away, working on a disabled vehicle with his brother.

DCF was notified, and the child was left with her uncle, who was on the scene.
