DENVER (CBS4) – Doctors have upgraded a pregnant woman hit at a Denver crosswalk from critical to serious condition. Her husband is now asking the driver that hit her to come forward.

Laurie Gorham was 34 weeks pregnant and her baby boy died from the crash. She was hit Thursday night by an SUV at the intersection of Central Park Boulevard and East 29th Avenue.

“Laurie is fighting through this, and just please pray for her,” Gorham’s husband Pete Sherlock said. “This has been a tragic situation and the events of the past few days are truly overwhelming.”

Sherlock’s grief has touched so many in the Stapleton neighborhood.

“It’s so tragic, but Father I would pray that they have peace,” a neighbor prayed.

“Words cannot express the outpouring of kindness and support our family has received,” Sherlock said. “We hope everyone will keep Laurie in their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.”

    They are a wonderful couple; this tragedy could not have happened to more undeserving people. I have known Laurie since she was born; we grew up together, people used to think we were twins. I hope with every fiber of my being that the person responsible for this comes forward and turns him/herself in. Do the right thing. Please.

    Such a horrible tradgedy, they look like a beautiful couple. So sorry this had to happen to them. There isn’t much you can say in a case like this accept I hope she heals quickly and that their marriage is strengthened by this terrible event. These poor kids are going through hell and need the support of the community. God Bless them.

    Unless the driver has a conscience, I doubt you’ll ever hear from him or her. And I do so hope that Laurie recovers from this horrendous accident.
