MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky.— Around 10:15 Saturday morning, McCracken County sheriff's deputies responded to a single car crash involving a toddler in the 5100 block of Nace Lane.

Tina Tripp, Michael Tripp, and their three children were part of a large crowd gathered for an auction. Deputies say Tina Tripp was backing out of the driveway when her two-year-old child, Daniel, became trapped underneath her front tire.

Tina Tripp was taken to Lourdes Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries and later released. Daniel was airlifted to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital where he is listed in stable condition.

No charges have been filed at this time, but the investigation is ongoing.
