Johannesburg - The toll of a two-car collision on the R554 near Carnival City on Saturday rose from four to five, paramedics said.

"The injured eight-month pregnant woman and her unborn baby died shortly after arriving at hospital," Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said.

Her heart had stopped earlier at the accident scene but she was resuscitated back by paramedics before being airlifted to hospital.

Two others remain in a critical condition.

The cause of the accident was unclear.
