Victoria crash:

Three teens and a lady in her 30s were killed in a “really traumatic and destructive” automobile crash in Victoria during eight hours. Police are attempting to determine what happened during that time.

The automobile was “obviously travelling at extremely high speed” down a very small lane, according to Assistant Commissioner for Lane Policing Glenn Weir, when the driver lost control and crashed into a tree.

Four people were killed in the crash on Saturday morning near Bochara, 300 kilometers west of Melbourne, and the only survivor was a 17-year-old girl who is currently fighting for her life in the hospital.

Due to the gruesome crash scene, authorities stated that it was still too early to determine who was driving the automobile and whether or not anyone had been using seat belts.

The four victims were initially thought to be four local young females, according to the police. Two teenage guys and two teenage girls were added to the details this morning, and a final modification was made this afternoon.

A bystander saw the wrecked red station waggon shortly after 9 a.m., eight hours after it was last seen on surveillance film leaving a nearby waterfall park at around 1 a.m.

Weir said,

“It could be the vehicle had been there for a long time,”

“We’re just hoping that the 17-year-old passenger who’s currently in hospital in a life-threatening condition can pull through so we can get some more detail of what actually occurred.”

The Wannon-Nigretta Falls Road, according to Weir, is “an English lane-type road where you sort of pull to the side to let other traffic come,” making it an unsuitable route for fast vehicles.

Around 12 p.m. on Sunday, investigators took the car’s wreckage out of the way. (Source :

Kayla also made contact with the relatives of those who perished on Saturday along with her sister.

It is believed that Megahn had a relationship with one of the lads who died. Lucus posted the phrase “You only live once, so make it a good f**king life” as his Facebook introduction philosophy.

Lucus and his friend Joshua Elmes, who unfortunately perished in the collision, were both members of the 314 Army Cadet Unit out of Warrnambool. The boy had been a car aficionado, posting pictures of hot cars to his social media accounts. Just a month prior, he had proudly marched in Warrnambool with the cadets on Anzac Day.

Just two weeks before Joshua Elmes departure, Matthew Elmes shared a memorial his son had created for his father’s birthday. Mr. Elmes said that despite his best efforts to be a good father, he felt like he had ‘failed’.

Jonathon Rowe, the principal of Monivae College, stated on Sunday that Joshua’s parents had requested that the campus community be informed of his passing. By publishing a tribute that the teenager had published for his father’s birthday on May 15, Matthew Elmes acknowledged the passing of his son.

The principal informed the parents in a letter that a support assembly would be held on Monday morning.

The principal said,

‘I have spoken to the Elmes family who have asked that this be communicated with the school community,’

‘Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to Josh’s family, including Josh’s brother, year 7 student Aaron.’

Crash victim A Hamilton mother in her 30s, Alicia Montebello.

Jaryd, her devastated brother, paid his “beautiful sister” a touching tribute on Sunday.

“Rest in peace, my beautiful sister taken way to soon you were loved very much. Forever with us love you sis.”

The driver of the Toyota Corolla at the time of the collision is still unknown. Three teenagers and Alicia Montebello, a mother in her 30s, all came from Hamilton, Victoria, which is 11 kilometers away from the disaster location.

The only survivor of the collision, a 17-year-old girl, was brought to the hospital with serious upper body injuries. It is hoped that the adolescent who is still alive and recovering in the hospital will be able to provide information to the authorities about what took place.

‘Parent’s worst nightmare’

The numerous deaths, according to Victoria Police Sergeant Ryan Nelson, would wreak havoc on the neighbourhood.

He said,

“Hamilton is a very close-knit community, and there’s five people involved in this and all their families and all their friends,

It’s going to hit the town really hard.”

Hamilton and Bochara each have 10,346 residents, according to the census taken in 2021.

David Robertson, the mayor of Southern Grampians Shire, said that the accident was every parent’s worst nightmare.

He said,

“This is horrific right across the community,

The whole community will feel the impact of this for a long time to come.”

According to the mayor, the collision occurred “somewhere between 4 am and 9.30 am on a lonely bit of road on Saturday morning.”

Due to the state of the roads and the local fauna, he claimed that safety is a major concern in the area. Children and family gathered for a confirmation service at Saint Mary’s Catholic Church on Sunday morning.

During the service, there was a moment of silence observed for the victims. At Hamilton’s Baimbridge College, where some of the victims studied, students could also be seen leaving floral arrangements and other memorials.
