PD: Baby delivered after pregnant woman, 2 kids hurt in Scottsdale crash

SCOTTSDALE - Scottsdale police say a baby was delivered after a crash that injured a pregnant woman and her two kids Monday night.

Scottsdale police spokesman Dave Pubins said the collision happened at Hayden Road and Roosevelt Street around 6 p.m. Pubins said a red Buick T-boned a Honda Accord trying to make a left turn onto Roosevelt.

Pubins said both the mother and the baby made it through an emergency surgery C-section.

Officers said a 16-year-old boy was driving the Honda when it was hit. His 37-year-old pregnant mother, his three sisters ages 11, 13, and 4 years old, and two girls ages 11 and 15 were also riding in the car.

Pubins said the boy's mother, who was in the passenger seat, was the most seriously injured. She was extricated from the vehicle and transported to a local hospital.

Two of the woman's children were also taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Officers said they believe everyone riding in the Honda was wearing a seatbelt, but it appears four of the kids were sharing seatbelts between them.

Police said the driver of the Buick was not injured. They believe he may have been intoxicated when the accident happened.

The intersection of Hayden and Roosevelt was shut down until midnight while police investigated.
