Husband pays tribute to wife killed in crash, as six children remain in hospital

The grieving husband of a Perth mother of six killed in a horror crash on Wednesday has posted an emotional tribute to his wife as two of his children remain in a critical condition in hospital.

Hannah Fraser, 30, died around 6.10am when the Kia Carnival she was driving collided head-on with a cement truck on Goomalling-Toodyay Road in Wongamine, north-east of Perth.

Four of her children, aged between 1 and 14, were airlifted to Perth Children’s Hospital, while two were rushed by ambulance. The truck driver received minor injuries.

Two of the children, on Thursday, remained in a critical condition while four were in a stable condition.

Husband, Leighton Fraser said there were no words to describe the devastation of losing the love of his life.

“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 said.

“The thought of you not being here with me is so surreal, yet at the same time I know two things; the first is that you’re right here with me, and you always will be, and the second is that you will be sitting at the throne of God in awe of him just like we always talked about.

“So 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. Till I see you again rest easy my darling.”

Mr Fraser also thanked the community for the love and support he had received since learning of the devastating news.

A GoFundMe page set up to assist the family has raised more than $27,000.

A WA Police Force spokesperson said the crash is a tragic reminder of how the lives of so many people can be changed in an instant.

“In addition to the tragic loss of life in this crash, there are six children and the driver of the truck who have all personally experienced a traumatic event and will need ongoing support.

“Incidents like this also impact on the police officers and other emergency responders who attend the scene, and who provide ongoing care to those involved.

“While the circumstances surrounding this crash are still under investigation, it is clear something has gone wrong, and in that split second it has ended in tragedy. We urge all motorists to take care on the roads.”

Anyone who saw or has dash-cam vision of the crash is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
