The girl was in the front seat of the car, as it made its way along the A693 through Stanley on Friday 14th February.
A bottle was thrown from a nearby subway which shattered the car window, spraying glass onto the girl.
She was taken to hospital. Police are appealing for witnesses to what they are describing as a 'mindless act.'
