An Alabama woman has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child after police say she let her daughter ride in a cardboard box on top of their van.
A police spokesman said the 37-year-old woman was arrested Sunday after police received a call about a minivan on a state highway with a child riding on top.
The woman told police the box was too big to go inside the van, and that her daughter was inside the box to hold it down, police said.

A Canadian woman who describes herself as a white nationalist lost custody of her children after sending her daughter to school twice with a swastika drawn on her arm, the CBC reported.
The Winnipeg mother told the CBC she regrets redrawing the Nazi symbol after a teacher scrubbed it off. She is fighting the child welfare system to regain custody of her daughter, 7, and son, 2, who were removed from her home four months ago.
“It was one of the stupidest things I’ve done in my life but it’s no reason to take my kids,” the unidentified woman told CBC News. She is currently allowed to see her kids for two hours a week.
The tour of Julia Anscomb’s once beautiful home on the Sussex coast began in the kitchen.
“This is where we found Bailey,” she explained. Bailey is a lovable, shaggy-haired mongrel puppy and much loved family pet.
When Mrs Anscomb and her husband returned from a weekend away recently, Bailey was lying unconscious on the floor.
He’d been drugged. The incriminating evidence was left at the scene: discarded ecstasy tablets.
“He did eventually wake up, but for days he was very quiet, hardly moved and wouldn’t eat his food,” revealed a visibly distressed Mrs Anscomb yesterday.
Near the spot where the “comatose” canine was spreadeagled – and where Mrs Anscomb was now speaking – is a brand new luxury fridge. At least it used to be. Someone has vandalised it with a knife.
“It cost £600 and, as you can see, it is now covered in scratches,” said Mrs Anscomb. “It’s ruined.”
As for what happened to the washing machine (or, to be more accurate, on top of it), Mrs Anscomb, 37, could barely bring herself to say; she has been told it was where “group sex” had taken place.

A 43-year-old German man was taken to hospital in critical condition after he fell off a second story balcony during a spitting contest with his 12-year-old son, police said on Friday.
A spokesman for the police in the eastern town of Cottbus said the man in Forst had apparently lost his balance after thrusting too far forward in his attempt to outspit his son.
As one viewer noted in an e-mail, the “pro-homosexual theme” of this year’s event, telecast on CBS, was “disgraceful.” The writer added that “just because 6% of the population is gay,” porn did not need to be included in the broadcast. Another purportedly offended viewer was concerned that the halftime show would have an unfortunate lasting effect on his son, who “hoped to be a quarterback and now he will turn out gay…Thanks CBS for turning my son GAY.”

Drivers swerved cars and trucks into other lanes to avoid a 3-year-old boy, wearing only a diaper and T-shirt, who was playing along a busy highway after wandering away from home while his mother slept, police said. Some motorists stopped along Interstate 465 on the city’s west side Saturday to take care of the boy until officers arrived, the Indiana State Police said.
