WAYLAND, N.Y. – New York State Police say a pregnant woman, her baby, and a 12-year-old have died in a rollover crash on Interstate 390 in Steuben County on Saturday morning.
State Police released on update on Monday about the crash in the Town of Wayland. They identified Margarita Ramirez-Luna, 40, as the pregnant woman and Alex Andrade as the boy.
Troopers say staff at Noyes Hospital in Dansville were able to deliver Ramirez-Luna’s baby alive. The baby was taken to Strong Hospital, where the baby eventually died.
Troops say three families from Pennsylvania were in the van headed to Niagara falls when the van rolled over.
Thirteen people were inside van that rolled over including three children, a 1-year-old and two 8-year-olds. There were also two teenagers, the 12-year-old who died and a 16-year-old, inside the van.
The van was heading north when around 9:30 a.m. Saturday, between Dansville and Wayland, it crashed. State Police say there were three families in the van and they were headed from Norristown, Penn. to Niagara Falls.
Traffic was shut down while first responders tended to the victims. Nine people, including the pregnant woman, were taken to Noyes Hospital. One person was taken to St. James Hospital in Hornell and two more were airlifted to Strong Hospital.
Right now, troopers believe the driver lost control because of an issue with the rear passenger tire.
