BURLINGTON, N.D. (AP) - An Alabama woman is facing a child neglect charge after she was stopped by North Dakota authorities for driving a pickup truck with four young children in the truck’s box.

Ward County Chief Deputy Bob Barnard says the pickup was stopped Thursday afternoon on U.S. Highway 2 near Burlington. He says deputies found children ages 6, 7, 8 and 8 in the box, which had a fiberglass cover.

Three adults and children ages 1, 2 and 10 were in the cab. Barnard says the 1-year-old was the only child restrained in a car seat.

Police arrested 32-year-old Amber Parker. The children were turned over to family members after arrangements were made to safely transport them.

Parker’s listed attorney could not be reached for comment.
