Pregnant Mom of 2 Loses Unborn Baby and Husband In Car Crash, Suspected Drunk Driver Arrested
She was seven months pregnant.
A 23-year-old woman lost her unborn baby girl and husband after an alleged drunk driver reportedly ran a stop sign and crashed into her family's car Saturday.
Alexander Delapaz Perez, 56, who has two prior DUI convictions, allegedly plowed into the driver's side of the couple's car at about 2 a.m., according to a police report.
Angel Barranco, 35, and his wife Barbara Velasco, who was 7 months pregnant, were transported to the local hospital, but Barranco and the unborn baby did not make it, reports said.
Velasco and her mother, Monica Alarcon, 42, suffered major injuries in the crash, according to reports.
"Remarkable Father, Husband, Son, Brother, Son-in-law, brother-in-law and friend, he will be missed by many, but will forever remain in our hearts,” Barranco’s brother-in-law wrote of him on the family’s GoFundMe page.
Barranco and Velasco have two children.
“Angel, having been the sole breadwinner at the time of this tragedy, any remaining funds, may be used towards cost of living for Barbara and her two children while she recovers both physically & emotionally and has secured a job to provide for her family, now as a single mother.
Delapaz-Perez received medical treatment for minor injuries and was charged with gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and driving under the influence causing great bodily injury.
