A father has admitted abandoning his seriously injured three-year-old daughter in a burning car after crashing it on the Great Eastern Highway earlier this year.

Bevan Stanley Cameron, 25, is facing a string of charges after the incident in April which shocked Perth.

This morning in Perth Magistrates Court, Cameron pleaded guilty to failing to assist his little girl and instead fleeing the scene when the stolen Kia Carnival burst into flames after it crashed near Midland

Cameron had yesterday told a court he was so intoxicated he cannot remember the crash.

His daughter Ebony-May suffered serious internal injuries in the crash, which prompted a charge of dangerous driving causing bodily harm in a manner that was dangerous to the public.

Cameron also admitted that charge, as well as an allegation he stole the car from the Yerrigan Health Service in East Perth.

The 25 year-old will be sentenced in the District Court in September.

He is also charged with being armed to cause fear, driving with a blood alcohol level above 0.08 and unlawful assault, which will be dealt with after the more serious charges.

The toddler had to be rescued from the flaming vehicle by police, and needed to be placed in a spinal splint before she underwent emergency surgery for a torn bladder.
