A pregnant woman and her unborn child both died Saturday afternoon from injuries they suffered in a two-vehicle accident. 

Tiffany Robbins, 26, of Acworth and her unborn baby both passed away at an area hospital where they were being treated for injuries sustained in the accident in the southwest sector of Cherokee. 

Deputies with the Cherokee Sheriff's Office were dispatched to the accident, which occurred at the intersection of Victory Drive at Woodstock Road.

According to the sheriff's office, Robbins, who also had her three-year-old daughter restrained in the backseat of her vehicle, was turning onto Woodstock Road from Victory Drive when her Honda Accord pulled into the path of a truck traveling northbound on Woodstock Road. 

Lt.  Jay Baker, spokesperson with the Cherokee Sheriff's Office, said Robbins, who was seven months pregnant, was conscious and alert at the scene of the accident.

The woman and her three-year-old child, who both had "visible injuries," were transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital for treatment. 

The driver of the truck was not "not seriously injured" and was not taken to a hospital for treatment, Baker added. 

Robbins underwent an emergency c-section at the hospital, but the baby did not survive. Robbins later died of internal injuries.

The driver of the truck will not face charges, Baker said.
