Katherine Hoang was in the back seat of the Nissan driven by 17-year-old Ann Hoang when Richard Moananu's Mazda collided with them near Glenmore Parkway at Orchard Hills, Sydney, Australia.

As reported by 9 News, Katherine's husband, Bronco, was also in the car and was the only survivor, aside from Moananu, of the horrific crash.

SO CLOSE TO BEING BORN

Bronco was also transported by ambulance to Westmead Hospital; he suffered a severe head injury and had to be put into an induced coma by the medical team.

Katherine, who was pregnant with twins expected to be born within the next few weeks, perished at the scene, along with the unborn children.

SHOCKINGLY VIOLENT

The crash was incredibly violent, so much that both cars were reduced to nothing but 'cubes of mangled steel and shattered glass.'

According to NSW Ambulance acting inspector Joe Ibrahaim, it was 'one of the worst scenes' that he has ever been to in his career.

DEEMED A CRIME SCENE

Officers from the Metropolitan Crash Investigation Unit are currently analyzing the crime scene and the road will be closed until the end of the investigation.

In July, an unborn baby managed to survive a car crash after being ripped from her mother's womb following a particularly horrifying car crash.

Her mother died instantly but the little girl, who was named Giovanna by the hospital staff, was found lying just a few meters away from the crash site by Elton Fernando Barbosa, the first paramedic to arrive at the scene.
