MUNCIE, Ind. - A woman who crashed on an Indiana road after being punched by her boyfriend has been charged in connection with the death of her 6-year-old daughter who was thrown from the vehicle.

WRTV-TV reports that 28-year-old Jessica Skeens was arrested Tuesday on preliminary charges that include neglect of a dependent resulting in death and driving while intoxicated causing death.

Police say Skeens and 27-year-old Nathaniel Jordan were arguing when he punched her and grabbed the steering wheel. The van rolled over a ditch.

Skeens suffered a broken arm. Jordan and three of Skeens' other children suffered minor injuries.
