    Family and friends had been planning a baby shower for an expecting mother of two, killed in a crash in Ramona on Mother's Day.

    "Last week, we were doing baby shower things and now we're planning a funeral, not a baby shower," Jessica Foderingham's best friend, Kandace Smith said.

    Foderingham was eight months pregnant-- her baby did not survive the crash.

    Smith said Foderingham had been so excited to have a girl and the family had been planning to reveal the baby's name at the shower this coming weekend.

    "Her kids were everything to her--everything," Smith said. "And she kept taking about how excited she was because she was finally having a girl and she never thought she would have any more kids."

    Just before 7 p.m. Sunday night, Foderingham's car was struck from behind by 44-year-old Andrew Milonis along San Vicente Road, according to California Highway Patrol (CHP) officials.

    Her car was pushed head-on into a tree.

    Smith told NBC 7, Foderingham's husband had been driving separately behind her and witnessed the crash. The couple had been heading to her grandmother's house for a Mother's Day dinner.

    Investigators said Milonis drove off, parked his car and then took a Lyft to The Turkey Inn on Main Street, where he was later arrested.

    "It's heartbreaking. I think a lot of us are so upset because of how it happened and the fact that he didn't even stay," Smith said. "He just took off and went to another bar--didn't even care to see if she was okay.”

    Flowers and gifts have been left at the accident site, in memory of Foderingham. A vigil was held at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

    Milonis is set to appear in court Wednesday. He is being held on a $1 million dollar bail.
