Mom killed in crash on daughter's 6th birthday


Authorities say 43-year-old Stacie Milholen died in a chain-reaction crash. They say a white van cut off a truck, which swerved to avoid a crash, and ended up into oncoming traffic. That truck and the vehicle driven by Milholen collided. The van that started the domino effect drove off.

The driver of the truck, Jacob Holcombe, was taken to a hospital in critical condition. Milholen's 16- and 6-year-old daughters had minor injuries.

And if this story wasn't tough enough, it was the six-year-old's birthday Friday.

Authorities ask anyone who may have seen the crash to come forward.
