On this day: Oct. 1, 1970

A 24-year-old Kennewick mother left her two sons, 2 and 4, in the family car while she went in to renew her driver's license. One of the boys pulled the shift out of park and the car rolled into the corner of Builder's Hardware. $400 damage was done to the building and $75 to the car, but no price could be put on the mother's frayed nerves.
