A one year old baby was found in the middle of a Smith County roadway on Tuesday.

Smith County Sheriff officials tell KETK, they received a call around 8:30 am that the child had been walking in the middle of the 11000 block of FM 14, near Fielder Rd.

Two people reportedly swerved to miss the baby. They then stopped and removed the baby from the road.

A neighbor told them the baby belonged to a family nearby.

Authorities were contacted, and approached the house that the neighbors reported as the baby's home.

The door was ajar, and officials discovered an elderly woman passed out on the floor inside.

After medical care, the woman was discovered to be the baby's grandmother, and had suffered a seizure just after opening the door.

The baby had walked out the open door after the woman collapsed.

The baby's mother had left the child with the grandmother while she went to work.

No charges will be filed, and everyone involved is okay.
