A baby who was delivered by doctors after the infant’s pregnant mother was mortally wounded in a hit-and-run crash Tuesday evening in San Jose has died, according to the San Jose Police Department.
The baby’s death comes as San Jose police continue to investigate the wreck, which happened at about 8:40 p.m. Tuesday at the intersection of Blossom Hill Road and Winfield Boulevard in South San Jose.
The baby’s 21-year-old pregnant mother, April Zoglauer, was driving a black 2008 Nissan sedan east on Blossom Hill Road when she collided with a white 2013 Hyundai sedan traveling south on Winfield Boulevard, according to police.
Zoglauer died after being rushed to a hospital. Doctors managed to deliver her baby, but the infant also later died, San Jose police said.
Two people identified only as “unknown males” ran from the Hyundai, police said. Authorities added that the car was stolen but that the theft had not been reported at the time of the crash.
Police have not indicated who was at fault for the crash or which driver had a green light, saying the circumstances are still being investigated. No arrests have been announced.
The collision marked the city’s 43rd and 44th traffic deaths of the year; the city had recorded 57 roadway deaths at the same point in 2022.
