Mapeu said investigations were ongoing, and the driver (mother) could be charged for causing death by negligent driving.

“We encourage people to ensure minors are safely kept in the toddler’s car seats when travelling to reduce the risk.  We are still investigating the accident, and the driver could be charged,” he said.
