Both occupants of the vehicle were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash.
The driver, 43-year-old, Kimberly Doman of Millstone, was semi-conscious and was reporting head and neck injuries.
Her front seat passenger, 24-year-old, Atiana Doman, who "was" 9 months pregnant, reported having hip and pelvis pain.
Both women were transported by Quality Medical Transport to Bowker Field in Whiting where they were then air lifted to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
As of the time of this release, Atiana Doman has been treated and released.
Police say that both the mother and unborn child are doing ok.
The condition of the unborn child and if there is any relation between the driver and passenger has not yet been released by police.
This crash is being investigated by Sergeant Antonio Ellis of the department's Traffic Safety Unit.
