The victim lost control of the truck which then caused them to veer off the road, flip, and hit trees, reports say.

A deputy, who happened to be traveling behind them, stopped to check on the occupants and provided assistance to them until EMS arrived on scene, according to reports.

Gosnell, her husband, and their 5-year-old daughter were taken by EMS to the AnMed Hospital Emergency Room.

Deputies say the child was treated for minor injuries and released to relatives. Gosnell remains hospitalized for injuries obtained during the collision. Her husband also remains hospitalized and is expected to recover, deputies say.

Gosnell will be served with the outstanding warrants upon her release from the hospital, reports say.
