YAKIMA, Wash.-- A baby who was thrown from a van during an accident is improving. The four-month-old is now in "satisfactory" condition at a Seattle hospital. This is what the accident scene looked like Friday. Police say the baby wasn't properly strapped into her car seat.
Officers arrested the father after he ran away from the scene. Miguel Alcala appeared in court Monday afternoon. He faces hit-and-run and vehicular assault charges.
