Sad detail after Aussie mum, 30, killed in horrific car crash
The parents of a woman tragically killed in a horrific head-on collision have spoken of their struggle following the news of their daughter's death.
Hannah Louise Fraser, 30, was driving on Goomalling-Toodyay Road north of Perth on Wednesday morning when the car she was in with her six kids collided with a cement truck.
The mum-of-six died at the scene and her children — believed to be aged between one and 14 years old – were taken to Perth Children’s Hospital with various levels of injury, WA Police said.
Ms Fraser's father Stephen and stepmother Christina Fox — who live in the UK — said "we are absolutely beside ourselves" after hearing the news and are now desperate to get to Australia for their daughter's funeral.
The couple — who say they have 10 children between them aged between 7 and 30 — set up a GoFundMe page to help raise funds "to see our grandchildren and say goodbye to Hannah".
"Yesterday we received the terrible tragic news that our daughter Hannah (my stepdaughter since she was 10) had been involved in a fatal car accident," Ms Fox wrote.

"Her six beautiful children were in the car too and were airlifted to the Children’s Hospital. Some still in a critical condition.
"The pain we feel being so far away is almost unbearable," they said, adding "we just want to be there for our other children, Hannah's sisters and brothers".
The couple have so far raised just over $4000 (£2,290) of their almost $30,000 (£15,000) goal which they hope will go towards travel.
Grieving husband's emotional tribute
Another GoFundMe is set up for Ms Fraser's husband Leighton Fraser by his father Cory who said his daughter-in-law "was taken to soon".
The money will go towards helping the widower and his children find their feet.
The grieving husband shared an emotional tribute to his wife on Facebook following her death. The two were set to celebrate eight years of marriage next month.
"I'm sure I got the chance to tell you just how much your presence in my life made me a better man or just how much you meant to me, and I hope that in the years we spent side by side my actions told you every day that I love you more than words can describe," he wrote.
"The thought of you not being here with me is so surreal.
"As I look to our future I vow to raise the kids to the absolute best of my ability and promise that I will always honour the amazing person you are.
He concluded by saying "I will love and cherish you always".
The two were set to celebrate eight years of marriage in November.
In a Facebook post thanking family and friends for their support on Thursday morning, Mr Fraser said the children would make it.
"All children are stable at this point in time, we will be in hospital for quite some time as there are a lot of injuries but they are pulling though," he wrote.
"At this time I have no words to describe how devastated I am."
