The husband of a 37-year-old woman killed in a horrific head-on crash in Wundowie last year has spoken of his loss for the first time as police appeal for witnesses to the tragic incident.
Samantha Jones died after her Toyota Corolla collided with a silver Mazda 6 hatch on Great Eastern Highway, about 5km west of Hawke Avenue, about 11am on July 23.She and her son and daughter were trapped in her car and had to be pulled to safety by passing motorists before the vehicle burst into flames.
The woman suffered serious injuries and later died in hospital.
Her two children and the 76-year-old male driver of the Mazda 6 received minor injuries.
Brad Jones said the loss of his wife had left him without a soul mate and his two children without a mother.
Mr Jones said the injuries his two children had as a result of the terrible crash and what they went through, and were still going through, would serve as a reminder of the tragic day for life.
He said they wanted witnesses to come forward so they could have closure and possibly prevent a similar tragedy happening to another family.
“Mr family and I are appealing to anyone who may have seen anything that day to come forward, as small as it may seem, that could explain how this accident occurred so that we may have some sort of closure,” Mr Jones said.
“Please come forward and help us understand why or how.”
