Young Pregnant Woman Dies In Car Accident On The Way To The Hospital To Give Birth

-

A pregnant North Carolina woman died Sunday night while her husband drove her to the

hospital to deliver her baby.

Megan Riggans, 22, was headed to UNC Chapel Hill Hospital with her husband Casey when

the car hydroplaned, veered off the road and struck a tree, J.R. Zachary, a trooper with the

North Carolina Highway Patrol, told the station.  The wreck occurred in a rural area in

southern Alamance County where severe thunderstorms dropped heavy rain throughout

the evening.   Megan Riggans was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from the vehicle

during the crash, TheTimesNews.com reported. She was unconscious when rescuers

arrived. Doctors at Alamance Regional Medical Center were able to deliver her baby boy.

She was later pronounced dead.  The infant was still breathing and had a pulse, Zachary

said. The baby was transferred to UNC Hospital. His condition as of Tuesday morning

was not clear.
