POLICE have confirmed a woman fighting for her life after a fatal crash on the Sunshine Coast last night is pregnant.

One man is dead, another had emergency surgery this morning and the pregnant woman is in intensive care following the horror smash.

A male and two children, a nine-year-old boy and a five-year-old girl, are also in hospital following the crash on the Bruce Hwy.

The severely injured man and woman are the children's parents. It is believed the family is from Ipswich and was on its way to Hervey Bay when the crash happened.

Police believe a car travelling the wrong direction in the northbound lanes crashed with one vehicle before sliding into a third car about 10.30pm.

The crash happened about two kilometres from the Nambour-Bli Bli exit at Kulangoor.

A 54-year-old man died at the scene, while his 50-year-old passenger was taken to Nambour General Hospital in a serious condition.

The driver and passenger of the first car hit, a 28-year-old man and woman, were taken to Nambour Hospital with serious injuries.

The woman is in intensive care, while the male is still undergoing emergency surgery.

The two children in the back seat of the car remain in hospital in stable conditions.

The driver of the third vehicle, a 53-year-old man, was not injured.

Sunshine Coast Forensic Crash Unit is investigating.
