Mum Of Girl, 2, Who Died After Car Rolled Into River 'To Be Questioned By Police'
Police are reportedly set to the speak to the mum of a two-year-old girl who died after the car she was in rolled into a river in West Wales.
Little Kiara Moore tragically died when the car she was in rolled down a riverside slipway, while her mum Kim Rowlands had popped out of the vehicle to speak to her partner.
According to the Mirror, officers who are investigating the tragic incident have said they could question mum Kim, 25, over whether she put the little girl 'at risk' by leaving her in the car.
The paper reports that police are due to speak to Kim and her boyfriend, Kiara's dad, Jet Moore.
Officers are reported to be investigating whether the electric 'button brake' on the Mini was activated before the car rolled down and slipped in the River Teifi, Cardigan.
When asked by the Mail Online, police didn't rule out the possibility of charges over the toddler's death.
A Dyfed Powys Police spokesman said: "Enquiries are continuing and we are due to carry out interviews. We are not looking for anyone else in connection with the death."

He added: "Examination of the vehicle will form part of these enquiries."
It's not illegal to leave a child unattended, but it can be an offence if leaving them alone is 'likely to lead to injury or suffering'.
The devastated mum posted a heartbreaking post on Facebook, in which she wrote: "Sadly yesterday my beautiful baby girl passed away! Due to my own stupidity, I will have to live with the guilt for the rest of my life!
"Mummy loves you baby girl and I'm so sorry!"
Kim left the little girl strapped in the car, while she nipped into the office of the outdoor activities centre she runs with Jet. When she returned moments later the car had disappeared and she initially feared it had been stolen, with the little girl inside. She posted a message on Facebook urging people to keep an eye out for a silver Mini with her daughter in.
However, Kiara was later pulled from the river by police, after a massive search. She was flown by air ambulance to hospital in Cardiff, but medics were unable to save her.
The heartbroken parents have since been the subject of disgusting online trolling, with police issuing a warning that charges could be brought for anyone found to be sending 'malicious comments'.
A Dyfed Powys Police spokeswoman said: "We are aware of potentially malicious comments relating to the incident on social media. These are being reviewed and action may be taken where appropriate."
