"She had one child up and was trying to get the other,” said Daniels. “Apparently she saw her family, and tried getting to them, because she got excited."

Daniels tells CBS 6 her granddaughter suffered road rash and injured her leg. "We’re most blessed, because it could've been worse," Daniels said.

Police say the driver of the car did stop and little Karri was taken by ambulance to VCU Medical Center.
