ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A 2-year-old Albuquerque girl was seriously injured after she was ejected from a car involved in a rollover crash.

Police spokesman Simon Drobik says the crash occurred Saturday morning near Mountain and Woodward.

According to Drobik, 29-year-old Erica Garcia was traveling westbound when her Nissan crossed into the eastbound lane.

The vehicle hit the curb and went off the road.

The Nissan then drove up wire from a utility pole and was about 14 feet above the ground before landing on its roof in the street.

Drobik says the girl was thrown from the vehicle. She was taken to the hospital but her condition was not immediately known Sunday.

Garcia, who showed “obvious signs” of intoxication, was also transported to the hospital. She is expected to face felony charges.
