Click here to help: Pregnant woman dies in 2-vehicle collision in Oklahoma City

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KOCO)- A pregnant woman was killed Thursday in a crash on Interstate 40 in Oklahoma City. Her baby, Sally, was delivered post-mortem and three months early. Sally is in critical condition and her family is asking for help.

A GoFundMe Page has been set up for a baby. Sally is three months premature and has been suffering from multiple seizures a day. Ashlyn's mother set up the GoFundMe page which has already raised more than $8,000.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol emergency crews responded to a collision involving a car and a semi-truck Thursday night in the westbound lanes of I-40 near Morgan Road. The driver of the car lost visual of the roadway due to an improperly secured hood, slowed, veered to the left, and was hit by the semi. The car spun, departed the roadway, and struck the median.

Ashlyn Byers, 20 of Yukon, was a passenger in the car. She was taken to OU Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A pregnant woman has died following a two-vehicle collision on Interstate 40 in far western Oklahoma City.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 20-year-old Ashlyn N. Byers of Yukon was killed in Thursday's crash. Troopers say Byers, a passenger, was six months pregnant and her child was delivered after she was pronounced dead.

The patrol says two other passengers, 20-year-old Jennifer Vantil and 21-year-old James A. Amway, survived.

The patrol says the crash occurred at 7:43 p.m. in Canadian County. The victim was in a car that troopers say was westbound on I-40 when the driver lost sight of the roadway when an improperly secured hood popped up.

The patrol says the vehicle then slowed down and veered to the left, when it was struck by a tractor-trailer truck.
