DENVER — A Colorado lawmaker has no recollection of a weekend crash north of Amarillo, Texas that left a pregnant woman dead and her baby in critical condition, a state trooper said Tuesday.

Texas trooper Gabriel Medrano said that no charges have been filed and the Sunday accident remains under investigation. He said Sen. Suzanne Williams will be questioned again and the department has 30 days to complete the investigation.

"She doesn't remember what happened in the crash," Medrano said.

Williams' son and grandsons were also injured after Williams' SUV veered into oncoming traffic and collided with another carrying the family of 30-year-old Brianna Michelle Gomez of Amarillo.

Gomez died and her baby boy was delivered by cesarean section and remains in critical condition. She also leaves behind a husband and two daughters, who were treated and released following the crash.

Williams says the tragedy is a burden she will carry the rest of her life.

What a tragedy. How does she not remember that?! Was she drunk? Was she high? Unless she went into a diabetic coma, that would be the only logical explanation. Our prayers go out to the Gomez family.
