Pregnant woman dies in Ohio crash; baby delivered

PERRYSBURG TOWNSHIP, Ohio (AP) — A woman who was 9 months pregnant has died in an auto accident on U.S. 20, but her baby has been delivered.

WTOL-TV reports that 26-year-old Rachel Kominek was pronounced dead at the accident scene around 5 p.m. Thursday. Her baby was delivered by EMS workers and airlifted to a hospital.

The state Highway Patrol says Kominek was killed when her husband, 24-year-old Dustin Kominek, lost control of his car on a snow-covered road while making a turn. It stopped in an intersection, where another car struck it.

Dustin Kominek, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was thrown from the car and suffered non-life threatening injuries. The occupants of the other car, 33-year-old Melissa Domanowski, the driver, and her passenger, 34-year-old Jillian Sheetz, also suffered non-life threatening injuries.
