RAMONA (KUSI) — A vigil will be held Tuesday for an eight-months-pregnant mother who was killed in a crash with a suspected drunk driver in Ramona on Mother's Day.

Jessica Foderingham, 29, was killed when a 2011 GMC Yukon pickup truck being driven by Andrew Dorian Milonis, 44, rear-ended the 2016 Dodge Dart she was driving on San Vicente Road and Arena Drive at about 6:45 p.m. Sunday, according to the California Highway Patrol. 

The impact sent the car veering into a center median, where it struck a tree, killing 29-year-old Jessica Foderingham, who was eight months pregnant. The Ramona resident and her unborn daughter were pronounced dead at a hospital.

Foderingham, a mother of two, will be honored with a vigil organized by the family Tuesday at 6 p.m. at the site of the crash.

Milonis allegedly fled following the collision, then abandoned his vehicle about a mile away and called for a Lyft driver to give him a ride to a bar on Main Street, CHP public-affairs Officer Kevin Pearlstein said. Deputies found him at the tavern about an hour later and arrested him. 

Court documents show Milonis' license was suspended at the time of the crash. 

Milonis, a Ramona resident, was booked into San Diego Central Jail. He was being held on $1 million bail pending arraignment, scheduled for Wednesday afternoon. Authorities closed the roadway in the vicinity of the crash site. It was reopened shortly before 11 p.m.

Milonis has been charged with driving under the influence causing death, hit-and-run causing death and vehicular manslaughter. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday, May 17.
