MORE than $50,000 has been raised for the family of a pregnant mother who was killed in a car accident in Hobart's CBD on Friday.

The 24-year-old mother of one was 32 weeks pregnant when she was killed instantly about 1am on Davey Street.

Her body was transported to Royal Hobart Hospital and staff managed to deliver the baby successfully.

The boy remains in a critical condition.

Several fundraising websites have been started since the tragedy.

One site - Stirling Family Fundraiser on MyCause - raised $50,000 in the 24 hours since the incident.

The page was started by Banjo's bakeries as the woman's partner works for the company in Hobart:

"Banjo's Corporation wishes to express their sincere condolences to staff, family and friends affected by these tragic events. Banjo's is a tight knit family and our thoughts are with everyone concerned. 

Banjo's stores will be fundraising to assist the family as much as they can - donations can be made online or in any of our 46 bakeries around Australia."
