A woman drove for two days with her dead 11-year-old daughter in her truck before hitting a guard rail in West Virginia.

Witnesses driving along the same road say they saw the driver, 37-year-old Erica Newsome of Jacksonville, Florida, dragging her daughter's body into the woods.

Newsome drove some 700 miles with her daughter's body in the car, and planned to drive all the way to Buffalo, New York where her father lives.

Police say they believe 11-year-old Kaye-lea Plummer was killed at her home in Florida before her mother put her body in the truck. 

Newsome told police she had picked her daughter up from bed and put her in the truck on Friday and that the girl didn't move, eat, speak, drink or use the restroom in two days, which is the amount of time it took to drive to West Virginia.  

Newsome told police she had killed her daughter and was abusive to her according to the Pocahontas Times.
