The baby that was saved by an emergency cesarean section Wednesday after her mother died in a car accident has died.

Kim Brown, 27, who was six or seven months pregnant died after a driver blew a red light at North Kostner Avenue and West Washington Boulevard, slammed into a van that in turn plowed over four pedestrians.

Brown, of 2958 W. Cortez St., was pronounced dead at 12:13 p.m. at Stroger hospital, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office.

Doctors were able to remove her child, but the premature infant had suffered injuries in the crash and couldn’t survive.

The man who blew the red light is currently in police custody.
