SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - A woman driving with her 3-year-old daughter, unrestrained, in the back seat, lost control and veered off the road on Saturday night, according to Florida Highway Patrol.

She quickly turned to go back onto the travel lanes when another pick-up truck hit their vehicle on the right side. The impact sent the 3-year-old through the right rear window. She sustained serious injuries but is now recovering in the hospital, according to FHP.

Local parents are upset with the accident, calling on parents to keep their children safe while in vehicles.
