NJ mom loses both kids in Route 78 crash: Girl, 2, dies days after brother
LOWER SAUCON, Pa. - A 2-year-old Newark girl who was thrown from a car in a crash on Route 78 in Pennsylvania has died from her injuries.
Her death comes days after her 5-year-old brother, Ravon, died at the scene of the crash Wednesday. Their mother remains hospitalized.
Lehigh County First Deputy Coroner Eric Minnich told the Morning Call that Brielle Robinson was pronounced dead on Friday at the hospital where she was taken after the crash.
Their mother, Stefany Stevens, 31, who was a passenger in the car, and the two children were ejected from the 2011 Nissan Versa driven by Nadine Watson, 54, of Newark, after it swerved across the eastbound lanes several times before striking a guardrail near Route 33 just before 1 a.m., officials said.
Pennsylvania State Police said open containers of alcohol were found in the car. They have not said whether alcohol played a role in the accident. Neither adult has been charged with a crime.
Everyone in the car was secured in car seats and wearing seat belts, police said. Walton was not ejected.
After the car came to a stop in the left lane, the car was struck by two other vehicles.
"Brielle went home to be with God this morning. Please everyone continue to pray for Stefany. Nadine is doing better and hopefully she will be back to herself soon enough,' read a GoFundMe page created to help with medical and funeral expenses.
