Recently, a May 2015 car accident was back in the news again. This Logan Township accident grabbed the attention of many because it involved the death of a pregnant woman and her unborn child. According to news reports, a car was driving along a road when it hit another car that had pulled off to the side of the road with its hazard lights on. The driver of the parked car, the aforementioned pregnant woman, was struck by the oncoming car. She and her baby died at the hospital soon after. The driver of the vehicle that caused the wreck was coming home from a bar and had a BAC of 0.104 at the scene. A crash reconstructionist involved in the case said that the driver had more than enough time to react and avoid the woman on the side of the road.
