Sgt. Stephanie Glueck cared for the infant immediately after the crash; she held the child in her arms before she was taken to the hospital.
Police said it's possible the driver failed to navigate the bend in the road, which could have caused the crash. Speed and impairment may have also been factors.
The crash broke a basement window, but it didn’t cause structural damage.
Cincinnati Police Department’s Traffic Unit is handling the investigation. Any witnesses should call 513-352-2514.
