Police in South Carolina say a 14-year-old girl was driving a car packed with children when it crashed, killing one child.
Police say the girl's mother was in the passenger seat of the 1989 Buick when it hit a tree in Sumter, S.C.
Thirty-year-old mother Nicole Ford was in jail Friday ahead of a bond hearing on multiple charges of unlawful conduct toward a child for allowing her daughter to drive.
The Item of Sumter reports that police say six other children were in the car Tuesday night. Nobody in the car was wearing a seat belt.
A one-year-old girl died later from injuries sustained in the crash.
Drivers in South Carolina must be at least 15 to get a beginner's permit.
Sumter County jail officials did not know if Ford had an attorney.
