   Witnesses are calling it a frightening situation.  

   A toddler stopped traffic on Southwest Avenue in south St. Louis Monday.  Fox 2 News reports that the child had been in the care of the Top of the Hill Daycare in the 5800 block of Southwest, when he wandered into the middle of the street.  

   One witness says the child in the street wasn't the only thing that was disturbing. "And on the curb, probably the hero in this thing, was a little girl, who was probably about five, holding back other toddlers from running into the street."

   Several cars stopped, their drivers corralling the child and getting him out of the road, then calling police.

   Police are now investigating.  

   The daycare has a sign that reads “state licensed,” but according to the Department of Health And Senior Services, that license expired at the end of March.  Police say the daycare is licensed with the city of St. Louis.
