LOUISVILLE - Authorities searched for a Ford Aerostar van that struck and fatally injured a pregnant woman at a Louisville intersection, authorities said.

Louisville police spokeswoman Alicia Smiley said police were looking for a mid- to late-1990s maroon van with no license tag.

Tracey Williams, 32, of Louisville, suffered multiple injuries when she was struck at 11 p.m. Wednesday, said Jefferson County Deputy Coroner R.D. Jones. She died at 4:08 Thursday morning at the University of Louisville Hospital.

Doctors delivered Williams' 7-month-old baby. Hospital spokesman Ken Marshall said he could not comment further until he spoke with the victim's husband. Smiley said the baby was in critical condition.
