UPDATE:

WINNSBORO, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Lasasha Allen has been arrested in the connection with this case.

Sheriff Kevin Cobb says that on Saturday Allen, 23, told her child's father that the child had fallen out of the car.  Cobb says that there was little reaction from the father.

On Sunday, officials say that Allen then went and threw the child out of the car causing serious injuries.  Allen took the baby to the hospital, and then was airlifted to Shreveport.  It is unclear if the Saturday incident actually happened.

The hospital notified sheriff officials about the case.

Cobb says that Allen was not under the influence of drugs at the time of the incident.  Also, he says that the sheriff's office would not perform a mental evaluation.  That would have to be ordered in the judicial process.
