CABELL COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A woman from Milton recently was arrested on child neglect charges after police say her 22-month-old daughter was improperly restrained inside a truck that was taken from a family member.

Bridget Nicole Clark, 21, was charged with child neglect resulting in injury and child neglect creating the risk of injury, both felonies.

Clark also was charged with unlawful taking of a vehicle and driving without an operator's license.

According to the criminal complaint, Clark took a Ford Ranger pickup truck from her mother while her mother was at church. Police found the child was not in an approved car seat -- but rather in a booster seat in the front seat.

Clark was arrested Sunday morning in the 400 block of Kane Street in Milton.
