A Sarasota County deputy said he spotted the 7-year-old wearing a bathing suit and no helmet as she was towed behind the SUV Sunday. Her toy car was tied to a trailer hitch with dog leashes. She was not harmed.

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune (http://lb.vg/xF7OO ) reports the vehicle was traveling less than 10 mph.
