A mother who was eight months pregnant was killed in a car crash on Dec. 26, but her baby managed to survive. How sad.

Wei Chu, 30, was rushed to a nearby hospital after the crash in Chandler, Arizona where she miraculously gave birth to a baby girl. Unfortunately, the young mother passed away moments later. Read on for more of the heartbreaking details. 

Chandler Police Department spokesman Seth Tyler told HollywoodLife.com, “The baby is still in critical condition as of right now (Dec 28).”

According to Officer Tyler, Chu’s father, 52, was driving the Honda Accord and failed to look for oncoming traffic before turning left at a busy intersection. The car was struck by a Ford utility truck that didn’t have time to stop.

“Chu was sitting in the back behind the passenger seat. Her 2-year-old son was also sitting in the back in a car seat. He was not injured, however Chu’s mother, 56, who was sitting in the passenger seat was injured. She is still being treated for injuries, but is expected to recover,” said Officer Tyler. “Chu’s father was not hurt.”

“I have been doing this for 12 years and I have never heard of a circumstance like this. So far this little girl is a miracle baby, but she remains in critical condition,” says Tyler. “When the paramedics arrived, Chu’s health quickly deteriorated on the scene and she was taken to a trauma center. The doctors were able to save the baby by performing a C-section.”

Chu’s husband arrived at the crash scene and was then taken to the hospital.

The truck driver was not driving under the influence and speed was not a factor. Chu’s father will most likely be charged with a misdemeanor.
