Losing someone you love changes you forever. And depending on your age, losing your mom can have a big impact on your life and for one family, the loss is being felt so hard right now. According to reports, a pregnant mother of three was killed just over a week before her due date with her fourth child. The death was unexpected and unfortunately the baby she was carrying passed away also. The family is now trying to pick up the pieces, hold up the three young children, and make sense of the whole situation.
According to PEOPLE, 38-year-old Melinda Cullen died on Tuesday while driving on Interstate 80 near Joliet, Illinois. Everything took a turn for the worse when a truck that was driving on the Interstate with her failed to ensure the safety of the vehicle.
According to ABC News 7, “About 2:20 p.m., the semitrailer was headed east on I-80 when a wheel hub came off the trailer’s rear axle near Rowell Avenue and crossed over into the westbound lanes of traffic, according to Illinois State Police.”
