March 15, 2010 – Ashley Derochea, 20, from Brockton, Massachusetts and Michael Cornell, 21, suffered serious personal injuries in a car accident that left their infant passenger dead. According to the Massachusetts State Police, Derochea lost control of her 1998 Honda Accord and it careened into the right side guardrail. The car then rolled over and eventually collided with the left side guardrail. The accident occurred at approximately 10 p.m. on Saturday just north of exit 2 on Route 95 South in Attleboro.
Both Derochea and Cornell were transported to Rhode Island Hospital and treated for serious injuries. The baby, who was ejected from the vehicle, was taken to Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island, where it was pronounced dead.
It is unclear at this time if the baby was buckled into an approved car seat. The accident remains under investigation by the state police.
