Crash Kills Pregnant Mom; Baby Saved
Victim's 15-year-old son was behind the wheel.
An Arlington, Texas family is mourning the loss of a mother, wife and daughter.
ShaChela Womack died in a car crash early Sunday morning.
Womackâ€™s 15-year old son, who relatives said had just gotten his learner's permit was behind the wheel of the car.
They said he may have been driving because she was tired.
Her 5-year old daughter was also on the car.
Womack was 9 months pregnant, police said.
The children survived, and doctors were able to save the baby, but Womack died.
â€œShe found happiness, she had just found happiness with her husband,â€ said Lavonne Gilbert, Womackâ€™s mother.
Womack had just gotten married on June 30th.
â€œTo be married only 30 days and for this to happen,â€ Gilbert said.
Gilbert said Womack was driving back from her own baby shower.
The police report said Womackâ€™s son told police he couldnâ€™t see through the back window because of the items in the car.
â€œThose were her baby shower gifts,â€ explained Gilbert. â€œSomething happened, he lost control, I guess they went off the road, flipped.â€
The children are expected to be okay.
Gilbert said the babyâ€™s heart is beating, and doctors at Methodist Central are looking for brain activity.
Womackâ€™s husband was at a funeral for his grandmother at the time of the crash.
The baby will be named after that grandmother.
There is no word on if there will be charges.
