      Investigation continues into wreck that killed pregnant mom

      DENVER (AP) - Texas authorities are weighing whether to pursue charges in a car crash north of Amarillo that injured a Colorado legislator's family, left a pregnant woman dead and her baby in critical condition.

      Texas Trooper Gabriel Medrano said Wednesday that investigators took a blood sample from state Sen. Suzanne Williams of Aurora. Authorities say the SUV Williams was driving veered into oncoming traffic Sunday, colliding with a vehicle carrying 30-year-old Brianna Michelle Gomez of Amarillo and her family.

      Gomez' son was delivered by cesarean section and remains in critical condition. Gomez died and her husband and two daughters were treated and released.

      Northwest Texas Hospital spokeswoman Caytie Martin says Williams' 41-year-old son was in satisfactory condition Wednesday and his two sons have been released.
