WICHITA – Police in Wichita say a pregnant woman who was injured in a two-vehicle crash delivered her baby before she died at a hospital.

Twenty-one-year-old Trevadawn Pauley was one of six people injured in the crash Tuesday night. Pauley was seven months’ pregnant.

Police say doctors at Wesley Medical Center delivered the baby girl before Pauley was pronounced dead around 1 a.m. Wednesday. The newborn was reported in critical condition later Wednesday.

The crash happened at a southwest Wichita intersection when a southbound SUV hit a northbound car making a left turn.

Two other people suffered serious injuries in the crash, while three were treated for minor injuries.
