It happened on I-69 near Daleville. An Indiana State Police report just released to FOX59 shows a half-empty bottle of vodka was found in the glove compartment of a car that stopped suddenly on the highway on Tuesday, June 3. Four-year-old Tavionna Ford and her family were in that vehicle. The report also showed the little girl was not in a car seat.
