According to Captain Kevin James with the Laramie County Sheriff's Office, Castillo's passenger was a 4-year-old girl.

"I do not know the relationship of the victim to the juvenile," said James.

James says the girl was taken to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center and then flown to Children’s Hospital Colorado for treatment of her injuries.
