Heather Trimble, Injured In June 6 Crash, Has Died

A mother who gave birth hours after she was injured in a fatal Collin County crash has died a week after the wreck that also killed her parents and two others, WFAA-TV (Channel 8) reported.

Heather Trimble, 24, was eight months pregnant at the time of the crash on June 6 near Anna. She was taken to Medical City Plano, where doctors delivered her baby early. Her 4-year-old daughter, Matilda, was also hospitalized.

In the latest update two days ago, a GoFundMe set up to help the Trimbles stated that Heather Trimble remained sedated and in critical but stable condition. Her newborn, Hadley, had gained weight and was taken off a breathing machine.

Heather Trimble's parents, Julie and Wayne Trimble, both 51, were killed in accident. The family had been traveling in a Ford Focus that was caught in the middle of a massive chain-reaction crash that began when a Pontiac Grand Prix carrying four teens slowed down on Highway 121.

The teenagers' car spun into oncoming traffic where it was hit by the Trimbles car, which then veered into the northbound lane and was struck by a utility truck, officials said.

Two of the teens, Abigail Kendall, 15, and Brianna Gesino, 15, died at the scene. In total nine people were injured in the five-vehicle crash.
