The girl was in the very back portion of the 1999 Lincoln Navigator,” Greengard said.

According to California Highway Patrol, Veronda Gladney and her boyfriend Michael Branch were driving north on the 5 freeway in Santa Clarita on July 2. At around 3am, Gladney’s seven-year-old daughter fell out of the back of their SUV, law enforcement said. The girl wasn’t in a child seat when she tumbled out of the broken back window, according to CHP officer Joshua Greengard.
