Pregnant Mom Dies After Truck Hits Her Stalled Car: ‘Her only concern was for her children’
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Despite her own grave injuries, a pregnant Michigan mother was only worried about her children after a pickup truck slammed into her vehicle Sunday afternoon, a witness told WXMI. Valery Arreola, 21, and her two children were in a 1999 Nissan that stalled in the roadway when it was struck from behind by the truck. Arreola and the children were taken to the hospital, where Arreola and her unborn son later died. Her 3-year-old son was critically injured, but his 5-year-old brother escaped with only minor injuries.
