Authorities say a third daughter is hospitalized with critical injuries after the crash Friday night in Bedford, just outside of Cleveland.


Officials identified the woman as 30-year-old Maria Thorpe of Maple Heights. She was six months pregnant. The crash also claimed the lives of two of her daughters, ages 8 and 5. Two other daughters were injured in the crash.


Investigators say another motorist ran a red light and struck the car Thorpe was driving shortly before 10 p.m. They believe alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.
