(TERRE HAUTE) - One woman and her unborn child have died due to injuries suffered in a serious accident. It happened in Terre Haute on U.S. Hwy 41 just after 5 p.m. on Saturday.

Michael Clouse of WTHI reports that 29-year-old Erin Shook had to be airlifted to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. Shook died Saturday night because of the severity of her injuries. She was 35 weeks pregnant.
