Pregnant Woman And Baby Dead, Three Hurt In Horror Crash

A young pregnant woman and her baby have been killed, and her boyfriend and two others seriously injured, in a horrific head-on crash in Perth.

The woman was the passenger in a Nissan Skyline struck by a Ford Falcon at the intersection of the Great Eastern Highway and Homestead Road in Mahogany Creek about 7.45pm on Friday. She died at Midland Hospital.

The Skyline split in two when it was hit by the Falcon, smashing debris all over the road.

The 21-year-old woman and her unborn baby were killed. Her 23-year-old boyfriend suffered serious head and chest injuries, and is fighting for life in Royal Perth Hospital.

One friend said the tragedy was "so unfair".

"He was happy to be a dad, and happy to be starting this new stage in his life," he said.

The 23-year-old male driver of the Ford Falcon and a 19-year-old passenger were taken to Royal Perth Hospital with serious injuries, while another teenage passenger was uninjured.

Anyone with information, including dashcam footage, is asked to contact Crime Stoppers.
