According to one organization, Tennessee ranks eighth in the nation based on the number of child hot car deaths.
KidsandCars.org reports the state has had 33 fatalities since 1990.
According to the group, last year was the worst for child hot car deaths with 52 children dying nationwide.
This report was issued one day after a Morristown 3-year-old boy was found dead in a minivan in what police are dubbing a “tragic accident.”
Approximately 1/3 of hot car deaths of children happen when a child gains access to a vehicle and is not able to escape.
