Authorities say a Florida toddler was seriously injured after crashing her father's three-wheel motorcycle into a fence, the AP reports. The Miami Herald reports that the crash occurred Wednesday evening in a Miami-area neighborhood. Miami-Dade police say the father had just used the vehicle to get groceries. Minutes after going inside, the father heard the vehicle and rushed back outside to see it driving away with his 3-year-old daughter at the controls. Police say the father ran after the motorcycle and ended up being dragged. The vehicle eventually crashed into a fence, throwing the little girl. The toddler was airlifted to a Hollywood hospital, and the father was taken to a North Miami Beach hospital by ambulance. Police are investigating how the girl turned on the motorcycle and why she was unsupervised outside. (More Florida stories.)
