Newborn Baby Only Survivor of Mo. Car Accident
BARNETT, Mo. (AP) -- The southwest Missouri woman says her week-old grandson is the only thing that is keeping her going, after a traffic accident killed the baby's parents and brother while they were on the way to her home.
Angela Hartwig and her husband, Brad, were waiting to meet their new grandson Tuesday when they got a call that their daughter, son-in-law and 3-year-old grandson had been killed in the accident.
The only survivor was Gabrial James Wilcox, who was born on Sunday in Osage Beach. The family was to stop at the Hartwig home in Barnett before taking the baby to their home in Eldon.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident happened on Missouri 52 in Miller County when another car crossed the center line and hit them.
