A woman is accused of leaving her daughter and her mentally handicapped nephew in a car on the interstate in freezing cold temperatures on Monday, according to an incident report from the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office.

According to the incident report, Krystal Cannon, 25, of Woodruff, was involved in an altercation with her husband while driving down Interstate 26 and later left the car on the side of the highway with the children inside.

The husband said in the incident report that Cannon scratched his faced and pulled his hair before he got out of the driver's seat and she drove away with her daughter and nephew in the car.

The car was found by deputies a short time later parked on I-26 with its flashers on and the 3-year-old child and the mentally handicapped nephew in the car, but Cannon was not present, the report said.

Deputies said the temperature was 29 degrees with 24 mph winds.

The report said the car was said to be out of gas.

Cannon never returned to check on the children, deputies said in the report.

Cannon has been charged with neglect of a child or helpless person and criminal domestic violence, according to online records for the detention center.
