Identity released of special needs man left in hot SUV

Posted: Updated:

A special needs man died Thursday afternoon in Arlington, after being left in a hot SUV belonging to his group home.

Thursday morning around 9 a.m., Terrance Sanders, 29, and two others were driven by a group home employee to a day camp.

At some point, 2 of the 3 were dropped off, and the employee drove back to the home in the 6500 block of El Dorado Drive.

The employee, who told police she was unaware that Sanders was still in the vehicle, got out of the SUV and left it outside for most of the day.

At 3 p.m. another employee got into the SUV and started to back out of the driveway. He looked into the rearview mirror, and noticed Sanders in the back

He stopped the vehicle to check on him, but he was unresponsive. The employee then called police, who pronounced the Sanders dead on the scene.
