North Carolina church leader’s toddler killed in wreck, baby in critical condition

 

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A North Carolina church leader’s toddler was killed in a wreck and his baby is in critical condition.

WBTV reported that the Gentry Eddings, his wife Hadley and their 2-year-old son Dobbs were in a vehicle that was hit by a commercial box truck.

It happened Saturday near Wilmington. Dobbs died and the pregnant mother was forced to undergo an emergency C-Section to save their unborn child, according to the TV station.

She was eight months pregnant. The next few days of recovery are said to be critical for the newborn.

Gentry and his wife had minor injuries. Gentry is a worship leader at Forest Hill Church in south Charlotte.

The driver of the truck that crashed into the victim failed to slow down and caused a chain-reaction crash, according to what a trooper told WECT. The wreck is still under investigation.
