Ky woman arrested in toddler's hit-and-run death

GLASGOW, Ky. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a Glasgow woman in
the hit-and-run death of a toddler who walked into the street.

The Daily Times reported Saturday that the Barren County
Sheriff's office arrested 38-year-old Lori A. Ikner on Friday
night. She was charged with leaving the scene of an accident and
failure to render aid or assistance.

On Monday, 23-month-old Shayla Marie Wooten was struck and
killed by a white van on U.S. 68. The toddler got out the family
car and followed her father into the street as he was checking the
mailbox.

An eyewitness to the accident gave details about the van that
led to the arrest, according to the sheriff.
