Woman, unborn child killed in wreck

ACWORTH, Ga. -- A 26-year-old woman and her unborn child died from injuries they received in a car accident over the weekend.

The wreck happened Saturday at the intersection of Victory Drive and Woodstock Road in Acworth.

Cherokee County Sheriff's Lt. Jay Baker said Tiffany Robbins was trying to turn onto Woodstock Road from Victory Drive when she pulled into the path of an oncoming truck. The vehicle slammed into Robbins' Honda Accord.

Robbins was seven months pregnant. She was rushed to WellStar Kennestone Hospital, where doctors performed an emergency C-section, but the baby did not survive. Robbins died after the surgery, according to Baker.

The woman's 3-year-old daughter was also in the car at the time of the accident. The little girl was taken to Kennestone Hospital with what Baker called "visible injuries."

The driver of the truck that hit Robbins' car was not hurt.

The accident is under investigation.
