Colorado State Sen. Suzanne Williams, D-Aurora, veered into oncoming traffic in Texas, and hit another vehicle, killing a pregnant woman, who was a distant relative of Colorado State Sen. Kevin Lundberg.

Brianna Michelle Gomez was seven months pregnant. Her baby boy, delivered by emergency C-section, is in critical condition. Gomez's husband, and two other young children in their car, survived the crash.

Williams' car was also packed. Williams' adult son and her 7-year-old grandson were both thrown from the vehicle. The car also carried Williams' 3-year-old grandson. Only Williams was wearing a seatbelt — an irony given that Williams pushed for tougher seatbelt laws in Colorado.

Williams' grandchildren have been released from the hospital, but apparently her son is not faring as well.
