A woman and her boyfriend were killed in a horrific accident a short time after finding out she was pregnant.
The woman of England, was very excited about the positive pregnancy test, and went to her parents’ home to give them the wonderful news.
Sadly, the couple never made it to her parents’ home as they were killed in a car crash.
20-year-old Hannah Sanders was driving her car with fiance Lee Palmer, 26, when the vehicle slid and crashed into another car.
The couple of Oxted, Surrey, had just picked up the keys to a new apartment, and were looking forward to telling her parents that they were going to be grandparents.
In a heartbreaking interview after the tragedy, Sanders’ father, David, 52, and mother Pat, 59, spoke about how they discovered that their daughter was pregnant.
Police handed the parents a printout of messages, which their daughter had posted on an online forum for mothers-to-be.
After taking a home pregnancy test, Sanders announced the news of her pregnancy online. Her last message was 1:15 p.m., and the accident occurred about 1:45 p.m.
Sanders received many messages of congratulations and warm wishes. Some of the messages were posted after she was already deceased.
As news of the deaths spread, people began posting their condolences.
Investigators determined that Sanders lost control of her car and slid into oncoming traffic and directly into the path of a Toyota, driven by 75-year-old Rita Heath.
Heath, who did not suffer major injuries, told police that the Sanders was speeding before the two vehicles collided.
“Being a mother and marrying Lee was all Hannah ever wanted,” her broken-hearted mother said. May they rest in peace.
