Durban - A pregnant woman and her unborn baby died in an accident on the north coast of Durban on Friday, emergency services said.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said the 35-year-old woman climbed out of a taxi on the M4 at Westbrook and walked straight into an oncoming car as she tried to cross the busy roadway.

Paramedics were on the scene within minutes, but her injuries were too severe and she died.
