Despite the severity of the crash, Valentin's baby was found securely strapped in her car seat in the middle back seat and only received minor injuries.

Valentin died at the scene after troopers say she was ejected from the vehicle as it flipped multiple times while entering the south shoulder of Adamo Drive.

The Florida Highway Patrol says they were unable to locate any of Valentin's relatives for some time and had to turn the baby over to the Department of Children and Families.
