Here is the Story

TEXOLA Officials identified Miranda Chloee Espinoza-Hernandez, 5, of Oklahoma City, as the pedestrian killed in an incident following a crash early Wednesday on Interstate 40 in Beckham County.


Miranda was a passenger in an eastbound sport utility vehicle that rolled and crashed on the freeway about 3:45 a.m., troopers said. The SUV driver, Jessica Elaine Hernandez, 25, of Oklahoma City, was thrown out.

One of two other children in Hernandez's car was standing next to Hernandez, who was lying in the road, as an eastbound tractor-trailer rig in the left lane approached the crash, the patrol reported. The rig driver, Stephen Craig Carter, 43, of Shallotte, N.C., swerved into the right lane to avoid Hernandez and the child, but Miranda was lying in the right lane. He swerved to avoid Miranda, but couldn't turn the rig in time.

Hernandez died at a Sayre hospital, the patrol reported. Miranda died at the scene, but it is unclear if she died before or after Carter's rig ran over her, troopers said. The two other children in Hernandez's car were flown to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City, and one has since been released and the other is in good condition today, a hospital spokesman said. Carter and another man in the rig were not hurt.

No one in Hernandez's car was wearing a seat belt, the patrol reported. Carter and his passenger were.

who encourages woman and doctors to hurt babies?
this poor family, God help them, the world is not a safe place for them.
the baby is not part of the woman's body, the baby has it's own blood supply, with a different blood type, the nutrients and oxygen come from the mothers blood,

the womb was designed to house the fetus, thus this residence should be given 4th amendment constitutional rights.'no entry or search without a search warrant.

show some consideration that you show an animal's nest. please, thanks, you will be glad you did, I had children conceived by rape and they were extreme blessing just like my other children, children are children, they are precious, not perfect, but close enough for me,

...Treat them how you would like to be treated and use birth control, boys!,,.,,, Use your head along with your muscles!
Use birth control and stop the 3,000 abortions each day, and stop ruining our mothers and our doctors by this abuse of power.

Everybody ignore Sue Cyr. She is a lunatic who belongs in the nut house. She is on a quest to prove that the murdered known as Rae Dawn Smith is innocent of killing her daughter, Kelsey Briggs, though proof after proof shows Rae Dawn guilty. Sue also has claimed she has children as a product of rape, but then back tracks her statement, and says that it wasnt rape, that it was consensual, etc, etc.

She is never on topic on any board she "communicates" on

Now, before I get called an Off-Topicer, it is sad this event happened. I am praying for the family

Yes--extremely SAD--And Prayers for the truck driver as well.(It is NOT going to be "easy" for him/her to "live" with it either.)

Although the truck friver did what could be done to AVOID this accident--"Survivor's Guilt" is bad.
(As an EMT--I've seen it personally.)
