Sheriff Chuck Wright said deputies pursued the vehicle Queniya was riding in Monday morning after noticing erratic driving. The chase topped 100 mph before the 2012 Dodge Journey struck a guardrail and overturned in the median, ejecting the girl.
The girl’s aunt, 26-year-old Errika Shelton, was driving, Wright said. She suffered broken bones.
Wright said his deputies followed protocol but didn’t know a child was in the vehicle. He said the driver should have pulled over.
