NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A woman has been charged with child endangerment after she crashed into another vehicle, and police found her 2-year-old daughter was not in a car seat.

A police affidavit said 22-year-old Megan Banks had her daughter in the backseat of the car when she crashed just before 6 p.m. Wednesday at the intersection of Brick Church Pike and Briley Parkway.

She was charged with multiple offenses including child endangerment. Banks was held on $37,000 bond.
