Car accidents: Crash claims the life of pregnant woman and baby

A crash that took place on Mother's Day claimed the life of a pregnant woman and her unborn child. The cause of the wreck was determined to be a drunk driver who has been charged with eight felony counts, including both gross vehicular homicide while intoxicated and murder. The man called for a Lyft driver to take him to a bar after the crash. Car accidents such as this claim the lives of hundreds of California residents each year.

During his arraignment, the man pleaded not guilty on all charges, including hit-and-run and DUI. He is accused of slamming into the back of the young mother's car, causing her to veer into the center median and smash into a tree. A mile past the accident, the man allegedly abandoned his own wrecked car and called for a ride to a nearby bar. He was found at that tavern about an hour later and arrested by deputies.

The victim's husband was driving in front of her when the accident took place. The couple had been married less than a year and were expecting their first child together, a little girl who was also killed in the crash. The deceased had two sons from a former relationship whom the husband is now raising as his own.

When car accidents such as this occur on California roadways, the heartache is palpable. Families are left with emotional trauma, financial hardships and loss, which cannot be regained. A knowledgeable personal injury attorney can advise in these situations, and help the loved ones decide their best recourse in seeking justice and compensation for the devastation they have undergone.
