STEILACOOM, WA – A pregnant woman is dead after her 6-year-old son accidentally ran her over with a minivan.

The incident happened Monday afternoon across the road from the Sunnyside Beach Park parking lot.

Shannon MacLeod, 35, was outside of the running van loading items in the back when her 6-year-old son managed to put the vehicle in neutral or reverse.

MacLeod tried stopping the van but was run over and pinned underneath the vehicle. After firefighters used equipment to lift the van off of her, but she would die as she was being transported to the hospital.

However, doctors were able to save her baby via emergency C-section. Her family says the baby, named Joseph, weighed only 5 pounds and is very fragile.

This is the second tragedy to hit the family in recent months, having lost all of their possessions in a fire last December.

“We’re just trying to keep us all together that’s all,” her son Nathan said. “No matter how much she struggled or how much she starved her kids always came first and it’s always been like that with my mom.”

As you can probably imagine, a GoFundme page has been created to help with MacLeod’s funeral and to help her surviving six seven children.

    Bet dad never let’s that kid drive ever again.

    My brain shouldn’t go there, but now I’m wondering if the 6-yr-old started their house fire last December?

  • taffy550

    My brain went there too. Also, they still make birth-control, right??? Seven kids, starving herself to feed her kids.

  • Da Mac

    6-year-olds just don’t drive like they used to…

  • I don’t know why, but this made me laugh my ass off.

  • dammitall23

    I know! And even if she can’t use or afford birth control, hell, take it up the butt! Learn to blow! SOMEthing. She could probably even find YouTubes demonstrating how. Not that it’ll be an issue anymore.

  • Elizabeth McCarthy

    I know why.

  • PurpleAnn

    RIP and all that, but she’s a rough looking 35.

  • Dre Mosley

    Before I read that she was 35, I was thinking, “Damn, these women are getting pregnant later and later in life.” I seriously though she had pulled a Janet Jackson and got knocked up at like 50.

  • OK. I so shouldn’t do this because this is SO FREAKIN’ Sad but I must admit, I did laugh at your comment.

    If I’m not in the drivers seat, the engine isn’t running and the keys are in my pocket. My van broke the parking pawl twice, it would move in park. I threw the transmission out and swapped in a 5 speed manual.

  • AlabamDeb

    I was thinking more in her 60s. Sheesh, if having that many kids ages you that bad, I’m glad I stopped at 2!

  • jansav

    that is a son remembering his mom.

  • Jeania

    now you got a single dad who’s gonna be raising 6 kids while mentally uttering ‘i should of used a condom…..’ for the next 18 years ^^ >.> I’m evil, and going to hell lol

    On a side note, I know of a mom/dad with that many, and they are amazing parents and the kids are in sports, honor roll and stuff. But that’s not the usual case. Lol just had to say that to stand up for the those who procreate but can handle the outcome ^^

  • keepalow

    7 kids

  • Diva of Destruction

    That kid is going places in life.

  • Robin Wise

    Don’t have kids.

  • Sejanus

    She doesn’t look very starved to me

  • dilldoeh

    Someone had to stop this lady from having more kids before it was too late.

  • LA Woman

    I bet that kid started the fire too! It was funny how the news camera made sure to zoom in on his ass he seemed not to have a care in the world and the oldest son had no tears was it just an interview for money which they need but don’t pretend to cry people grieve different sometimes you cry weeks later or maybe all the time or never at all but her mom was for sure.
    So how does one deal with the kid who killed her after something like this happens? But most of all … How do you accidentally put a car in gear? You have to put your foot on the break to change gears it’s a safety feature all cars have for this very reason. This kid did it knowing when mom changes gears the car goes and that’s why he messed it. Kids are not as dumb as some people apparently think they are this wasn’t a mistake but rather a hyper little jackass messing with shit he knew not to mess with.

    You are an amazing woman! Or an honest dude. I don’t know which, but don’t ever let anyone call you anything that doesn’t begin with amazing or honest ever again. You’ve earned it, you amazingly honest person you!
