AURORA, Colo. (AP) -- A mother of a toddler who was photographed in a car not buckled up, with a gasoline can in the car seat next to him, says the photo is a big misunderstanding.

The Colorado Department of Transportation posted the photo on Facebook this week. Aurora police Lt. Chuck DeShazer has said the photo wasn't staged.

DeShazer says an officer snapped the photo last week after stopping the vehicle for making an improper turn. The officer found that the toddler, a 14-year-old passenger, and the driver weren't properly restrained. Driver Sandra Ramirez was ticketed.

Ramirez told KUSA-TV in Denver on Wednesday her son was in the car seat but wiggled out while she spoke to the officer, and the teen then put the gas can in the car seat.
