Young Mother Dies Days After Baby Killed in Crash

A young mother has died from her injuries suffered in a car accident at the Claude highway and Washington St. south of Amarillo.

16-year-old Stephanie Phelps died this morning, three days after her infant daughter passed away.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says Phelps was on her cell phone and did not stop at the intersection. A pickup then crashed into her, sending her car into a cement truck.

Her four month old daughter was ejected from the car and pronounced dead after she and Phelps were taken to Northwest Texas Hospital by Lifestar.
