A man died while rushing his pregnant wife to a hospital.
Police in Colorado, said that the father was driving his pregnant wife to the hospital when their car crashed.
Sadly, 37-year-old Tony Schmucker died before the birth of his third child.
Tony was driving his wife Jill, 35, and their two other children in their Nissan Pathfinder to the hospital for Jill to give birth to their third child.
Colorado State Patrol said that Tony Schmucker suffered a medical emergency behind the wheel, which caused him to veer off the road and the car tumbled down an embankment.
The car then hit a boulder and a tree before rolling over at 1:40 a.m. The couple’s son Ryder, managed to call 911 after his parents fell unconscious.
Ton was rushed by ambulance to the Poudre Valley Hospital, where he died of his injuries. His wife, who suffered a broken back, was taken by helicopter to another hospital, where she gave birth via emergency cesarean section.
The two children, who were in the back seat of the car, suffered minor injuries.
