Baby Born After Route 4 Crash Dies
The baby born prematurely after the crash that ended up killing his mother, Sully Sanchez, was two weeks old.
The family of Sullynette Sanchez, the 23-year-old pregnant woman who was killed in a fatal accident on Route 4 two weeks ago, told NBC 10 on Tuesday the baby who was born after the crash has died.
Two-week-old Daryel Sanchez died Tuesday morning at Women and Infants Hospital, family members said.
He was born by C-section at Kent Hospital after the Sept. 28 three-car crash that took his mother's life, then transferred to the intensive care unit at Women and Infants Hospital.
Sully Sanchez was driving on Route 4 in East Greenwich near Frenchtown Road when her SUV was rear-ended. In turn, her car rear-ended a third car.
The driver accused of hitting Sanchez has not been criminally charged or identified. Neither he nor the driver of the third car was injured.
Sanchez worked in the office of admission at the University of Rhode Island. She graduated from the school in 2011 with a bachelor's degree in psychology.
