Fayetteville, N.C. — A pregnant woman injured in a five-car wreck Friday morning in Fayetteville has died, police said Monday.
Regina Laffea, 39, of Seabiscuit Road in Raeford, ran a red light at the intersection of Raeford and Skibo roads, and her 2001 Hyundai hit a 2009 Toyota that was turning right onto Raeford Road, police said.
The Hyundai then hit three other vehicles waiting at the light to turn left onto Raeford Road before overturning, police said.
Laffea, who was seven months pregnant, died late Friday from her injuries. Her unborn child also died.
Her 9-year-old son, who was riding in the Hyundai, was taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center for treatment. His condition was unknown Monday.
