The victim has been identified as Amilia Johnson of Scottsbluff, according to a news release from the Sarpy County Sheriff's Office.

According to the sheriff's office, Johnson was secured in a child safety seat located in the back seat of a Chevy Cruz driven by 19-year-old Adriana Rodriguez, also of Scottsbluff.
