NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts man who survived a fatal wreck on Interstate 495 says he will name his soon-to-be-born daughter after the 22-year-old woman killed in the crash.

The Sun Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1P5Iapq ) 27-year-old Mike Sawyer and his wife are planning to name their daughter Alexis in honor of Alexis Felix, a nursing assistant killed in the Sept. 25 accident.

State Police say Felix lost control of her vehicle while entering I-495 North from an on-ramp in Raynham around 7 a.m.

Felix crossed three lanes of traffic before she was struck by Sawyer’s pickup truck, causing her car to roll over into the median. She was pronounced dead at Morton Hospital.

Sawyer says Alexis was already one of the names they were considering for their daughter, who is due to arrive in October.
