The husband of a expectant mother who lost her life in a horrific traffic accident in Arizona has reportedly passed away just days after his wife and unborn baby. Parker Stott had been fighting for his life, undergoing multiple surgeries, following the car wreck on December 20 on US 93 in Wickenburg, Arizona, according to a local news outlet. Despite the best efforts of medical professionals, Parker succumbed to his injuries on Saturday night.

“Early this morning, Parker went in for his 3rd surgery to do some clean up on his burns, as well as start on some skin grafting for his leg,” the family posted on Instagram.

“A few hours later, we received the update that Parker’s vitals were dropping and he was going fast,” they added.

The passing of Stott marks the heartbreaking culmination of a Christmas ordeal that commenced when he and his wife traveled to Arizona to announce the pregnancy news of 24-year-old Chloe Stott to their families.

“They had just found out they were pregnant with a baby and were so excited to be parents and share the news with their loved ones over Christmas,” a friend wrote on a crowdfunding platform.

While driving down Highway 93 near Phoenix around 8:15 p.m., the couple's Toyota Tundra pickup collided with a white Volvo commercial truck, as reported by a local news outlet.

They were in the process of overtaking other vehicles within a legal passing zone but couldn't complete the maneuver around the last vehicle.

Stott and her unborn son lost their lives instantly upon impact, as reported by the station. Parker was transported to the Arizona Burn Center, where he received intensive life-saving care. However, the severity of his injuries proved insurmountable for survival.
