Investigators said they believe a driver of one of the vehicles struck a parked van the child was playing in, throwing the 3-year-old from the vehicle.

It is believed that the driver showed no signs of intoxication after a drug recognition expert tested the driver.

Police said detectives will work with the prosecutor’s office to determine if any charges will be filed.
