PITTSBURGH — A man whose pregnant fiancee was struck and killed by a van in a Pittsburgh parking lot says their son was born by emergency cesarean section and doctors are evaluating whether he was harmed by a lack of oxygen.
George Weatherwalk told reporters that baby Trace Joseph was in critical condition Thursday, a day after the crash that killed his mother.
Authorities say 30-year-old Jodie Guthrie was sitting outside a drugstore Wednesday afternoon when an elderly driver trying to park jumped a curb and pinned her against the wall.
Police say 88-year-old Allen Massie may have hit the gas instead of the brake.
Police say the accident remains under investigation and a decision on whether to charge Massie will be up to the district attorney.
