A woman who was 35 weeks pregnant was killed this evening, and the baby is in critical condition, after a driver, who was possibly under the influence, struck her in Anaheim.
The collision occurred just after 7:30 p.m. on Katella Avenue, near Bayless Street, according to Sgt. Shane Carringer of the Anaheim Police Department.
The woman was walking on the sidewalk when the vehicle jumped the curb and struck her, Carringer said.
She died at a hospital, and doctors are working to save the baby, who is in critical condition, according to Carringer.
The driver was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries, and investigators believe drugs or alcohol may be a factor in the crash, Carringer said.
