Oakdale Mother Hit and Killed, Protected Baby Daughter
The love of a mother knows no bounds. Yesterday a mother gave her life for her 3-month-old daughter.
Oakdale police reported that Stacey Morgan, 33, must have realized that she was going to be struck from behind, because at the last second she shoved the baby stroller away from danger. Her daughter was ejected from the stroller, but since she was strapped into a car seat on top of the stroller, she was uninjured.
The accident happened in the 6900 block of 29th Street, in Oakdale, just before 8 a.m. Ms. Morgan was running east on 29th Street. A 16-year-old male was driving a 1997 Infiniti, in the same direction, and struck Ms. Morgan from behind.
Ms. Morgan sustained serious head injuries and was transported to Regions Hospital. She died a short time later.
Minnesota State Patrol will help further investigate the incident. Alcohol is not suspected as a factor in this tragedy.
