Documents: Missouri baby suffers brain trauma after crash

     (AP) – Court documents say a Missouri baby girl who was

delivered after her mother was killed in a crash on her way to a hospital to

give birth has brain trauma.

     Seven-month-old Maddyson Iler was delivered by cesarean section after her

mother, Sarah Iler, died in a three-vehicle crash in May just south of Cape


     Sarah’s sister, Kasandra Iler, is suing the man who was driving Sarah to the

hospital and the driver of a semitrailer involved in the crash. The company that

owns the semitrailer is also being sued.

     Neither of the two drivers was issued a traffic citations.

     The Southeast Missourian reports an amended petition in the case from

Kasandra Iler’s attorney says Maddyson suffered hypoxic brain trauma as a result

of the crash. Maddyson is receiving treatment at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
