A woman and her unborn child have died and her partner is fighting for life after their car was torn in half in a horror crash. 

Maddie Morgan, 21, and Jack Bryant, 23, were planning on spending their lives together and were preparing to welcome their baby early next month.

But they were tragically killed when their Nissan Skyline was T-boned by a Ford Falcon sedan in Mahogany Creek in Perth about 7.45pm on Friday. 

Mr Bryant was turning off the Great Eastern Highway when the Ford, which was coming down the hill, smashed into them.

An off-duty nurse who was travelling behind them witnessed the crash and helped the couple before paramedics arrived. 

First responder John Walker said: ‘My heart goes out the to the family, it really does. 

‘It didn’t need to happen. It’s a waste.’

He also told 9News that the sound of the crash was like ‘a bomb going off’.

Ms Morgan, who was the front seat passenger was taken to Midland Hospital but died a short time later.

Mr Bryant was taken to Royal Perth Hospital where he is recovering from serious head and neck injuries.

It is understood he woke from a coma last night but it is not known if he was told about his girlfriend’s death, the Western Australian reported. 

The couple’s Skyline was found split in two with wreckage from the car strewn around the crash scene. 

The 23-year-old Ford driver and his 19-year-old passenger were also rushed to hospital with serious injuries.

A third female teenage passenger was miraculously unharmed in the accident. 

The driver has since been discharged from hospital and will be questioned by police, Nine News reported. 

Friends of Ms Morgan and Mr Bryant visited the crash scene on Saturday and lay flowers for them. 

‘He was happy to be a dad and happy to be starting this new stage in his life,’ one friend told 7News. 

‘To just take it away like that, it’s not even fair.’

Anyone with dashcam footage or witnessed the crash is urged to come forward.
