This is just so terrible, so freakish

Falling concrete slab kills pregnant bank employee

A woman who was 8 months pregnant was walking down a sidewalk between her workplace downtown in Lexington and a parking garage when a pickup truck struck a 6 inch concrete slab on the side of the garage and it separated and fell--5,000 to 6,000 pounds--on her, killing her and the unborn child. She is survived by a husband and a small daughter.

I can't imagine. It must have been terribly quick, at least, but who would have thought such a thing would happen?
