QCOSTARICA – A short distance away was the pedestrian overpass, a young mother of 18 years of age, carrying her 6 month old baby in arms, was struck down by a motorist when she tried to cross the busy lanes of the autopista General Cañas.

Senseless deaths. The woman was killed on impact, while the baby crashed through windshield. Paramedics did their best to save the injured infant’s life, taking the baby girl, with signs of life, to the nearby San Rafael de Alajuela hospital, where doctors where able to stabilize her and then moved to Chidlren’s hospital in San Jose, where she died minutes after arrival.

This all occurred before 7:25pm Wednesday night, some 200 metres from the Alajuela toll booths.

When ambulances arrived at the scene there was nothing they could for Irma Gonzalez, who was now lying on the pavement, lifeless. The baby landed inside the vehicle, due to the force of the impact.  According to Rándall Picado, regional director of the Fuerza Publica (police), the infant was found on the floor of the back seat of the vehicle.

Apparently the woman, originally from Nicaragua and with only 15 days in Costa Rica, tried to cross the lanes of the busy highway, a few metres away from the pedestrian bridge.
