SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A woman who gave birth prematurely after being gravely injured in a North County crash died at a hospital Tuesday, as did the baby, authorities reported.
Carey Disanto, 35, was riding in an eastbound Toyota Tacoma on Oceanside Boulevard when her husband lost control of the truck for unknown reasons about noon Sunday, according to police.
The pickup hit a center median, overturned and rolled side over on its side before coming to rest in the westbound lanes of the street near Rancho del Oro Drive, Sgt. Rick Davis said.
Emergency personnel found Disanto, who was five months pregnant, partially ejected out a passenger window, unconscious and suffering from severe head trauma.
Medics airlifted her to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, where her baby was delivered. The child was then transferred to Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego. Both succumbed to their injuries Tuesday morning.
Disanto's 35-year-old husband was treated at an emergency room for minor injuries and released. He has not been cited in connection with the accident, though the investigation is ongoing, the sergeant said.
