Two people have been charged with neglect of a dependent in connection with the child's care, police said. They are Shirley M. Huff, 59, and Samuel K. Williams, 37, both of Brownstown. They remained in jail Friday evening.

Huff was driving the truck when the child fell out, police said. Williams, the girl's father, was not in the truck when the incident occurred. Huff and the child are not related.
