Tammy Boorer has died from injuries suffered in a car crash last week.

FLINDERS View mum-of-two Tammy Boorer died on Friday night at the Nambour General Hospital.

Friends and family, who had been praying for her survival, were devastated.

Ms Boorer was injured in a traffic crash on the Bruce Hwy at the Sunshine Coast on January 23.

The 28-year-old was in a vehicle travelling northbound with her husband and two children.

Her husband Nathan was in a stable condition at the Royal Brisbane Hospital after he was airlifted there for emergency surgery.

The couple's two children, a nine-year-old boy and five-year-old girl, survived the crash with minor injuries.

Mrs Boorer was believed to be 30 weeks pregnant.

The family had been on their way to Hervey Bay for a camping holiday when they were struck by a car travelling in the wrong direction on the dual carriageway near the Nambour-Bli Bli exit.

The children managed to escape the wreckage before the car was hit for a second time by a truck.

Police are investigating the cause of the crash that has now claimed two lives.

Central Ipswich Church has set up a bank account to help the Boorer family.

Donations can be made via Westpac, account number 196363, BSB 034189, with "Tammy" in the subject line.
