Albert William Pruitt -- who was on probation for DUI at the time of the crash -- faces between five and seven years in state prison when he is sentenced Aug. 7.
The crash occurred at about 7:15 a.m. Aug. 27 as Pruitt -- driving a Ford Explorer -- struck a curb while merging onto Fairmount Avenue from Aldine Drive.
Police said the 27-year-old Pruitt over-corrected, causing the SUV to roll over several times.
The 4-year-old girl, who was unrestrained in the back seat, was thrown from the SUV and suffered lacerations that required 90 stitches, prosecutors said.
A 2-year-old, who also belonged to Pruitt's 23-year-old girlfriend, was in a booster seat and was not hurt, nor was the defendant, but his girlfriend suffered an abrasion to her right arm.
At the defendant's arraignment, prosecutor Robert Eacret said Pruitt's blood-alcohol level was measured at .16 percent and .15 percent four hours after the crash.
