The toddlers were found around 3p.m. Wednesday inside a vehicle outside a residence in the 18000 block of County Road 1100. A person called 9-1-1 to report the toddlers inside the vehicle.

EMS arrived and found two girls, ages three and four. The four-year-old was taken to a hospital, where she died. According to the Smith County Sheriff's Office, the three-year-old was treated at the scene.
