Associated Press

SAN MARCOS, Texas — Police say a 22-year-old pregnant woman who was struck by a hit-and-run driver while walking home from work gave birth to a girl before she died.

San Marcos police say Diann Ford was returning from her job at Long John Silver's late Tuesday when she was hit. Ford, who was 37 weeks pregnant, was taken to an Austin hospital that night, the San Antonio Express-News reported.

She gave birth by cesarean section Wednesday, and the girl was taken to the hospital's pediatric intensive care unit. Ford died Thursday.

Her boss Kris Jaccard said Ford was excited about her future as a mother. Jaccard said Ford knew she was having a girl and had picked out a name.

Police were trying to find the driver of the car.
