The family of the three-year-old girl abandoned by her allegedly drunk father in the wreck of a burning stolen car on Sunday say her condition is improving.

Ebony-May Simpson was taken by her 25-year-old father after he allegedly bashed his former partner's niece on the front lawn of an Ellenbrook home.

The toddler had serious internal injuries after her father allegedly crashed on Great Eastern Highway at the Roe Highway on-ramp just after 11pm.

Ebony-May had emergency surgery on her torn bladder and is in Princess Margaret Hospital.

She is in a stable condition and understood to be out of a spinal splint but is expected to remain in hospital until the end of the week as doctors monitor her recovery.

Her father, of East Victoria Park, has leg and foot injuries.

He was remanded in custody at a bedside court hearing at Royal Perth Hospital on Monday.

He faces 10 charges including being armed in a way that may cause fear, stealing a vehicle, driving without a licence, excess 0.08 and dangerous driving occasioning bodily harm.

He was discharged from hospital yesterday and is expected to appear in Perth Magistrate's Court via video link today.
