Expectant NC woman survives crash on slick road

HICKORY — A Hickory woman who’s nine months pregnant escaped injury after the car she was driving slid off an icy road as she headed to a doctor’s appointment.

WSOC-TV in Charlotte reports that neither Stephanie Youman nor her unborn child was hurt.

Emergency personnel said Youman was driving on Airport Rhodhiss Road, which was coated with a layer of snow and ice.

Youman said she wouldn’t have ventured out Wednesday morning, but said she’s a first-time expectant mother and is one day overdue, so she was worried about her unborn son.

She said it would be “definitely memorable” if her son was born on Wednesday.
