An Overland Park, Kan., woman has been charged with aggravated endangerment of a child.

The District Court of Johnson County, Kan charged Cadejah Braylen Hopson, 19, this week after a child in her care was run over by a car.

The incident happened on March 22, 2015.

ORIGINAL STORY | 1yo run over, hospitalized w/ severe head trauma

Prosecutors wouldn’t elaborate on why it took so long for formal charges to be filed in this case. The Johnson County Sheriff's booking report said she was arrested on January 13 in Overland Park.

Court documents say Hopson failed to "properly supervise a child" in a parking lot while in the care of Hopson.

According to court documents, Hopson was getting out of a car at an Overland Park Apartment complex with her 1-year-old cousin, when she lost track of the little girl who had wandered behind the vehicle.

Hopson’s friend backed up not knowing the 1-year-old was there, and ran her over.

The girl was initially taken to the hospital with severe head injuries. She has since recovered, according to court records.

Hopson is currently being held at the Johnson County Jail on a $10,000 bond.

She will appear in front of a judge around 1:30 p.m. Thursday.
