A Volvo flew through the intersection killing a pregnant woman and amazingly the baby is still alive. Medical officials at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center delivered the pregnant woman’s baby successfully, although the baby was in critical condition.
Witnesses that came out to help said they knew it was a bad crash, some heard the pregnant woman screaming for someone to help her boys. Staff Sgt. Chance Stahl, an Army medic, said that he heard the screeching tires and then the crash. He immediately ran over to the pregnant woman to help but there was nothing he could do.
Karlisha Randolph was a passenger in her mothers 2001 Suzuki SUV with her 2 boys, ages 7 and 2, when a 1997 red Volvo ran a red light at the intersection of 39th Ave and Dunlap when the accident occurred. Before the crash, the Volvo had hit a city bus on 35th Avenue and Dunlap and was fleeing when he ran a red light and broadsided the Suzuki, causing it to roll over. The 21 year-old driving the Volvo slammed in to a wall. Randolph’s boys and mother did not have serious injuries.
The suspect, 21 year-old, who’s name has not yet been released, was hospitalized and will be booked on numerous charges when he is released from the hospital. Police believe he was impaired at the time of the accident.
Randolph’s uncle, Cory Boston, has taken in her 2 sons and is awaiting news from the hospital about the baby boy. Boston says the family has not named the baby yet.0 Comment
