Toddler Hit By Mini van

FARMINGTON, Ark. (AP) _ A toddler run over by a minivan is in

fair condition at a Little Rock hospital today. Fifteen-month-old

Kayce Watson suffered a fractured skull and injury to her chest and

abdomen when she was hit by the vehicle Thursday that was backing

out of a driveway at the home of the child's babysitter.

Forty-four-year-old Deborah Ranz, the babysitter, was cited for

second-degree endangering the welfare of a minor, a misdemeanor.

The driver of the car -- 27-year-old Rhianna Ranz -- was not cited.

Police said another child in the home near Farmington had left a

door open and Kayce went outside.

She was taken to the Farmington fire station, where emergency

medical personnel took her to Washington Regional Medical Center in

Fayetteville. She was later airlifted to Arkansas Children's

Hospital in Little Rock.

Hospital spokeswoman Ginger Daril says the child is no longer in

the intensive care unit and is in fair condition.
