The Honda was traveling in the opposite direction at the time of the incident. After hitting the first car, the truck carried on and struck a Chevrolet Silverado traveling in the opposite direction.

The truck driver only sustained minor injuries while the Honda driver, a 30-year-old man, left the scene of the accident unscathed. The Chevrolet’s driver was a 29-year-old pregnant woman.

She sadly sustained serious injuries and was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center by the Miami Township EMS. Her severe injuries led to the unfortunate death of her unborn child.

The Batavia Post revealed that alcohol and drugs were not suspected factors in the crash. This wasn’t the only vehicle crash involving a pregnant woman in recent months and a few years ago.
