The toddler was found dead Thursday afternoon after the vehicle she was riding in left Ray Owens Road and struck a tree. Her mother, 27-year-old Marina Middlebrooks, was driving the vehicle and was airlifted to Georgia Regents Medical Center, where she was in stable condition.
Police said Sky was unrestrained in the front seat and refused to say Friday whether she died as a result of injuries sustained in the crash.
On Saturday, Columbia County sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris said it is uncertain when Middlebrooks will be released from the hospital.
