Father Collapses As He Learns His Children Died In Collision
Shocking news has come through this morning, of a horror car crash that occurred when two cars in a travelling family convoy hit a fuel tanker.
Three siblings from the same family were instantly killed, with their father arriving back to the scene to see the shocking crash.
Jack Pink, 19, Marina Pink, 17, and Destiny Pink, 15, were killed when their cars burst into flames following the collision.
The family were travelling from Dubbo back to their home near Beenleigh in a convoy when the tragedy occurred.
Emergency services found Mr Pink at the roadside. Travelling in front, he looped back when he heard the accident on a two-way radio and discovered the carnage.
“We saw a man laying in the middle of the road when we arrived but we came straight to the burning vehicles,” Mr Roberts said.
The Pink family works with the travelling show circuit, Showmen’s Guild of Australasia, and Jack, Marina and Destiny were three of seven siblings.
Marina would have been 18-years-old the following day, and her mother, Jaze Pink, left a heartbreaking tribute to her daughter.
Marina was, “my happy, loving, selfless, caring, beautiful selfie taker,” and “perfect in every way,” she declared.
“Keep your brother and sister in line, give uncle a super big kiss then punch him cause he is so lucky to have you!
“I miss you more than words could ever say,” she wrote. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the large family of nine.
“As you can imagine this is an incredibly difficult time for their parents Jaze & Glenn and siblings Coral, Jeanna, George & Patrick,” the page reads.
“Marina, one of seven children to parents Jaze and Glenn Pink, was just a day short of her 18th birthday.
“All gone at the same time ... to lose 1 would be crazy. They lost 3 in 1 split second is just out of this world,” family wrote.
“Jaze and Glenn are good people with an amazing family ... what they do is everything for the kids.
“They are great people and their sacrificial love for their kids knows no bounds. This is a crushing blow to this tight knit family.”
The GoFundMe page had raised more than $61,000 as of Tuesday morning, with a goal of $100,000.
