A West Texas girl is paralyzed after she was found in the wreckage of a car three hours after a crash in Odessa earlier this week.
Daniela Flores, 4, was discovered by a towing company, a family member told KWES-TV.
She had been left in the care of her mother’s friend, who then left the girl with another man Monday, according to the KWES report.

Flores was riding in a car with the man when a three-vehicle crash occurred. After the wreck, the man told police there were no passengers in the car.
The back doors of the car were jammed shut, KWES reported, so fire officials looked through the windows and didn’t see anyone.
Three hours later, a worker for a tow company found Flores in the floorboard of the backseat. She was later taken to a hospital in Lubbock, where she remained Friday.
Officials are still investigating the incident, according to KWES. The driver of the vehicle does not yet face charges.
