Two London brothers were arrested Wednesday after a 2-year-old girl was nearly hit by two cars, according to the Laurel County sheriff's office.

Nathan Wagoner, 34, and Austin Wagoner, 18, are charged with endangering the welfare of a minor.

According to the sheriff's office, Nathan Wagoner was watching the child while her mother, Nathan Wagoner's girlfriend, was at work. Nathan Wagoner left the residence and left the child in the care of his younger brother, who was asleep. The child walked out the open door of the residence and onto a nearby roadway. Deputies entered the home and woke up Austin Wagoner, who had no idea where the child was.

The child was returned to her mother. The brothers are lodged at Laurel County jail.
