VESTAVIA HILLS, Ala. (WIAT) — The District Attorney’s Office has decided not to file charges in a hot car death case in Vestavia.
1-year-old Christian Evan Sanders of Birmingham died after being left in a truck for eight hours in April. The truck was parked at an office building in the 2000 block of Columbiana Rd.
Police arrived after receiving a call of a child being left in a car. Sanders was rushed to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
After a 5-week investigation, the District Attorney’s office determined that the death of the 1-year-old was nothing but a “tragic accident”.
