Pregnant woman and unborn child among four killed in collision after driver ‘flees EMS worker who woke them at wheel’

A PREGNANT woman and her unborn child were among four killed in a collision after a driver fled from EMS workers who had woken him up at the wheel.

The tragedy occurred in Clayton County, Georgia, on Sunday, leaving the pregnant mother, another child, and the driver who had fled all dead.

An emergency services crew approached a stopped pickup truck to wake a driver who appeared to be sleeping at the wheel around 1.30am, police said.

When the driver woke up, he appeared startled and sped away from the crew.

A short while later, police received a call that the same truck had been involved in an accident nearby.

The truck hit a car head-on that was carrying a man and woman, a child, and a dog.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found the pickup driver dead, according to Clayton County police spokeswoman Sgt. Julia Isaac.

The man, pregnant woman, and child in the second vehicle were all transported to an area hospital, Isaac said.

The man who was driving the car remains in critical condition, but the woman, her unborn child, and other child died of their injuries.

It's unclear at this time if the dog was harmed in the accident.

Isaac told KHQ on Monday that the victims had been identified as Brandy Sheree Gilkey, 34, and her son Christian McDonald, 8.

The man driving the car, Lashad Robert Lewis, 33, remains hospitalized.

The crash is currently under investigation.
