Police say the family had been traveling from Ohio to the Ringling, Okla., area Monday when the parents noticed the baby wasn't breathing. Investigators tell Oklahoma City television station KOCO that the baby was taken to the emergency room where she was later pronounced dead.

The baby's cause of death has not yet been released, but investigators say the car did not have air conditioning and only one window would roll down.

Temperatures Monday in Ardmore approached 100 degrees with an even higher heat index.
