A Philadelphia man has been charged with the murder of an unborn child after his SUV rear-ended a vehicle and then struck a pregnant woman during a street race Monday morning.
Police say Yaaseen Bivines, 19, and another driver were "engaged in a street race or chase" at high speeds past the Temple University campus. Bivine's SUV allegedly slammed into the back of the other vehicle, which was operated by a juvenile.
Bivine's vehicle lost control, jumped the curb, and struck 27-year-old Gina Campbell, who was sitting with two other males on a low concrete wall.
Campbell, who was seven months pregnant, was rushed to Temple University Hospital. Doctors performed a C-section delivering her baby girl that was pronounced dead around 9:30 a.m.
Campbell was listed in extremely critical condition, while six passengers in the racing vehicles were seriously injured.
In addition to third-degree murder of an unborn child, Bivine was also charged with felony aggravated assault by vehicle, DUI, reckless driving, racing on highways, and accidents involving a death with no license.
Bivines is being held on $1 million bail.
