Woman To Be Charged With Killing Own Fetus After Starting A Drunken High Speed Chase

Here’s another one for “Sick, Sad World.” A 21-year-old woman in Georgia, Jessica Bruce, was clocked doing 85 mph in a 65 mph zone on Wednesday night. A police vehicle turned on its lights, but Jessica refused to pull over, starting a high speed chase. The chase ended with her hitting a car, spinning into oncoming traffic, and causing a pile-up. All signs point to her being drunk at the time of the incident. Jessica is physically fine; however, the baby she was carrying isn’t. Once she is released from the hospital, authorities plan to charge her with “feticide by vehicle,” which carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in jail. Another driver involved in the crash is in the hospital, too. This case is sad on so many levels. All I have to say is, taking the speeding ticket would have been a much, much better idea. [ABC News]
