A 26-year-old Appleton woman and her unborn child died Thursday after a crash in Waupaca County involving three vehicles.

The crash happened shortly before 9:30 a.m. on US 10 westbound near Reek Road, near Weyauwega, according to the Wisconsin State Patrol.

A Chevrolet Malibu was going eastbound in the westbound lanes of US 10, according to a State Patrol news release.

A Mini-Cooper was going westbound, passing a semi tractor-trailer unit, when the Mini-Cooper and Malibu crashed head-on, then hit the front of the semi, according to the news release.

The driver of the Malibu and her unborn child died.

The driver of the Mini-Cooper, a 19-year-old South Milwaukee woman, suffered non-life threatening injuries, as did the 41-year-old man and 15-year-old teenage boy who were passengers in the Mini-Cooper.

The semi driver was not hurt.
