         Tractor clearing snow kills pregnant NY woman; baby delivered by C-section

By Haimy Assefa and Ray Sanchez, CNN

 

            A pregnant woman was killed Thursday after being struck by a tractor that was clearing snow in a parking lot. The woman was pronounced dead at the hospital, but her baby boy was delivered by a cesarean section. He weighed 6.6 pounds, and was in critical condition. This snowstorm was New York’s sixth severe winter storm. The driver of the snow tractor was not charged yet but is being investigated. Fourteen inches of snow fell during this snowstorm.

            As a result to this incident state officials are looking to ban certain commercial vehicles on the interstate.
