An accident that occurred in Waco, Texas, on Interstate 35 and the South Fourth Street bridge was only described as a fender-bender. While waiting for emergency responders, the two women who were driving the involved vehicles were standing on the shoulder of the interstate.
One of the women, 23, had taken her 8-month-old son out of his car set and was holding him when a pickup struck the two women. All three were knocked off the bridge, falling about 30 feet. The woman holding the baby used her body to create a cocoon of sorts for her son. When emergency responders arrived, they found the two women and the baby lying on Fourth Street.
