Cannon Falls Woman May Not Survive Traffic Crash Injuries
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The mother of a Cannon Falls woman critically injured in a Minnesota highway crash that killed her husband, baby and unborn child says her daughter may not survive her injuries.
Suzanne Mohn Brantly says her 26-year-old daughter, Elizabeth Calderara, is breathing only through a ventilator at Regions Hospital in St. Paul and that the family is ready to let her go.
Calderara suffered severe head and neck injuries in a crash Monday near Randolph that killed her 31-year-old husband, Jason Calderara, their 1-year-old daughter Melody and their unborn baby. Brantly says her daughter was 35 weeks pregnant. Nine-year-old Nicholas Calderara survived the collision between the family's SUV and a semitrailer and is hospitalized in St. Paul.
Authorities say injuries to the truck driver weren't life threatening.
