This is a bittersweet occurrence.
8-month-pregnant woman Wei Chu died in a car accident on Wednesday… and just when everyone thought that her baby wasn't gonna make it, doctors at a local hospital managed to deliver and save her baby!!
The crash happened when Chu's 52-year-old father took a left turn at a busy intersection in Chandler, Arizona without looking for oncoming traffic. A truck then unfortunately SMACKED right into the Honda Accord he was driving, and killed Wei.
According to the Chandler Police Department spokesman Seth Tyler, the baby is currently fighting for her life.
“We’re talking about a 20,000- plus pound truck and a maybe 3,000 pound car. And it hit her directly … It was a crummy situation.”
Chu's family survived the crash, and her dad will only be charged with a misdemeanor.
As for the truck driver, he's not at fault for anything.
This is sad in so many ways. Our hearts go out to everyone who's affected by this tragedy.
