25-year old pregnant woman died Tuesday night in a car crash near Al Qatranah, Karak Governorate in southern Jordan.

The mother and her unborn child were pronounced dead later at the hospital.
Karak's Public Prosecutor, Ma'mon Dmour ordered the Southern Forensics Center in Karak to perform an autopsy and further investigate the accident.
