May she rest in peace. To the other two people involved in the crash, I extend my best wishes to you and hope for a quick recovery.

UPDATED: The Community Alliance Party’s candidate in Brindabella, James Sizer, is blaming the Stanhope Government:
- “Tragically, this young girl might still be alive if the Government had kept to its 2004 election promise to duplicate the section of Tharwa Drive on which the head-on accident occurred,” Mr Sizer said. “Labor’s broken promises have cost communities their schools, facilities, health and community services, but this one has cost a family far too much.”
ANOTHER UPDATE: Marlin74 is closely involved in the tragedy and had this to say in the comments:
- It was my Brother & Sister in-law together with my two baby nephews 2.5 years and 13 months old returning home from my place from a family birthday party. My sister in-law is still in hospital after having surgery on Saturday.
I need to be careful of how much I say as I believe there is still a police investigation going on. What I do know is that allegedly the poor girl who passed away was in the backseat and not wearing a seatbelt and the driver of that car seemed to loose control and drifted into oncoming traffic.
My sister in law has a broken femur and the youngest has a broken collarbone, concussion for the eldest and my brother in law is banged up and bruised.
My sincere condolences to the family of the 15 year old girl. I hope the police reveal the cause of the accident soon so everyone knows what happened.
