She reportedly then attempted to swerve around the truck into the oncoming of traffic lanes and then struck the driver of a Toyota Camry head-on. 

Both drivers and the 14-month-old girl who was in Sosa's vehicle were rushed to the hospital. The baby later died from her injuries, officers said. 

On Monday, Sosa was released from the hospital and was charged with involuntary manslaughter, felony child abuse and not having a drivers license at the time of the incident. 

Investigators say the girl was in an infant carrier, however, the child seat was reportedly not being used as designed and the young girl was not properly restrained.

Detectives believe the misuse of the child passenger seat was a contributing factor in the girl's death.

The extent of the second driver's injuries have not been released.
