Pregnant woman killed in Houston car accident

A woman was killed in an accident in Houston while attempting to cross Main Street close to Rice University. The woman, a postdoctoral instructor at the college, was struck by an Acura being driven southbound down the street. The woman was pregnant, according to authorities, and the accident led to the eventual death of her unborn child.

Another driver in a car that had been traveling beside the Acura stopped at the intersection as the woman was crossing, but the Acura driver did not. The woman, seven months pregnant at the time, was taken to Memorial Hermann-The Texas Medical Center where she later passed away.

Reportedly, the baby girl also lost her life a short while after being delivered by an emergency cesarean section. The baby was to have been the first child born to the victim and her husband. There will be a memorial for the woman and unborn child.

The Acura driver stopped and was questioned by police officers but later released. So far, no charges have been filed, but the investigation was continuing. The husband and woman's family will likely want to know the details pertaining to the accident as they try and make sense out of a seemingly senseless act that caused a pregnant woman to be killed in an accident. Once the investigation into the accident is complete, the information collected may help the family decide whether to pursue legal remedies to hold any negligent party fully accountable for actions that caused or contributed to the sad affair.
