Pregnant woman, unborn baby die in local collision

As if I wasn’t nervous enough already, I woke up to the news this morning that, for the second time in as many weeks, a pregnant woman was killed in a car accident right here in the Merrimack Valley. A week or so ago, it was a pregnant woman killed in Lowell during a drag-race gone wrong (she was an innocent bystander). And now this. I’m just glad I was able to go right upstairs and kiss my wife and her belly, and that she was completely understanding of why I accidentally woke her up.
