A woman is in hospital after losing her unborn baby in a three-car crash on Christmas Eve in Queensland.

The 44-year-old driver was seriously injured when her Toyota was involved in a collision in Booral, near Hervey Bay, at around 6.45pm.

"The woman was pregnant, and sadly her unborn baby died as a result of the crash," a Queensland Police spokesman said.

Police say the pregnancy was viable and will be included in their traffic fatality toll figures.

The crash happened when a Mitsubishi sedan struck the side of a van going in the opposite direction on Booral Road, police said.

Officers believe the sedan lost control and veered into the path of an oncoming Toyota.

Two other women, aged 58 and 45, were also taken to Hervey Bay Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
