FORT MYERS, Fla.- A 31-year-old Cape Coral woman has been arrested for negligent manslaughter after a car accident at Fowler and Market Streets that killed her 2-year-old daughter in February.
The toddler, Eva Daghra, died from injuries sustained in the accident because she was not harnessed into her car seat.
Monique O'Neill-Daghra rear-ended another vehicle while Eva was sitting, unfastened, in her car seat, in the front seat of the vehicle they were travelling in.
The car seat was also not anchored into the vehicle and the airbag deployed.
Eva was transported to the hospital where she later died.
