Daughter, 15, dies as mum and siblings are injured in Mother's Day crash


It has been the worst imaginable Mother’s Day for a mid-north South Australian family after losing a teenage daughter in a horror car crash while her seven-year-old brother is fighting for life.

The 15-year-old was killed when the family’s 4WD rolled at Bangor about 45km from Port Pirie.

Four girls, aged between four and 11, have sustained non-life-threatening injuries, alongside the 35-year-old female driver.

The family were travelling along a narrow stretch of road when somehow their Toyota rolled.

Tragically the 15-year-old in the front passenger seat died at the scene. Her brother was flown to Adelaide with life-threatening injuries.

Four other sisters and their 35-year-old mother were also injured. Physically, they will recover but the emotional toll is unimaginable.

“It’s another tragedy on South Australian roads bringing the road toll to 29. Take care, drive safely, arrive alive,” Inspector Allison Clark said.

The family is well known in the community and the mother is helping police with their inquiries.
