FORT MYERS, Fla.- A tragic story in Southwest Florida. A mother loses her unborn child after a car crash on I-75 that involved a Florida Highway Patrol trooper.
The wreck happened last month and now the North Fort Myers mother and her family are sharing their story for the first time with Fox 4.
Crystal McClure's 18-month-old son rests next to her in a hospital bed at Lee Memorial Hospital. Her son lies undisturbed and unaware of his mother's heartache.
"Painful, but it's going good. I am recovering faster than they expected," said Crystal McClure who was injured in a car crash on I-75.
Crystal had teeth knocked out. She had punctured lungs, a fractured hip socket, a crushed pelvis along with other injuries.
Crystal and Christopher McClure are now speaking publicly for the first time since the crash on I-75 in Fort Myers with their attorneys at their side. The crash involved an off-duty Florida Highway Patrol trooper who slammed into the family's car.
"I went from the passenger's seat to the driver's seat and out the windshield," said Crystal.
