ATLANTA -- A woman has been charged in an accident where a 2-year-old girl was ejected from the vehicle.

The Georgia State Patrol has charged 31-year-old Tamecka Shalandra Moore with driving too fast for conditions, a tire violation and a child restraint violation in Friday's accident.

The little girl, Kiara Talayan Brooks, was treated at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston after she was ejected on Interstate 85 near Cleveland Avenue. She was released from the hospital Sunday.

11Alive photojournalist Dan Reilly spoke with a HERO unit operator on scene who said the Lincoln Navigator was traveling north when it lost control and hit the center median. Georgia State Patrol says the child went through the window, over the median and into the shoulder area on the opposite side of the interstate.

Officers said there was a child safety seat in the car.

"Preliminary indications are that the child was in a child seat," said GSP Cpl. Bernard Bradshaw. "The seat did not leave the vehicle, the child did leave the vehicle and was ejected."

Monday, the GSP announced the straps were loose on the child safety seat, and the right side strap was not latched.

GSP says there were four adults and three children in the car.
