MIAMI (AP) -- Police say a fight between two women over a 15-month-old girl likely led to fatal crash in Miami.

Reports say the series of events began Tuesday night when 20-year-old Mylife Rivera-Vasquez asked to see her child, Juliet Rivera, who lives with her father and his girlfriend.

According to police Rivera-Vasquez persuaded the girlfriend to meet her so she could see the baby. The mother arrived with several people and punched the girlfriend.

She grabbed the girl and jumped into a car that sped away and crashed into another vehicle. The child and the 22-year-old driver Kristofer Astorga were thrown from the car. He was killed. Police say the mother and child are in critical condition.

Rivera-Vaszquez has been charged with simple battery.
