- john Gibson
Australia Car Accident, In Victoria, the deadliest crash in ten years has claimed its first fatality. One of the five individuals murdered in the horrific crash in Strathmerton, northern Victoria, on Thursday was mother Deborah Markey, 62.
Daniel Montero, her devastated son, said to Herald Sun that his Cobram-based mother was recalled as the “life of the party.” “A ridiculously fun and energetic person,” he declared. “She was just too forgiving and had time for everyone. At every event, “she was the life of the party and a hardworking community member.” According to Ms. Markey’s Facebook page, she was a widow. In a post from last year, she stated that she had lost her spouse Robert to lung and brain cancer in 2007.
She also adored dogs and was a steadfast supporter of the nonprofit organization Pets of the Homeless, which works to care for stray animals. Daniel claimed that his mother had discovered “a niche” for accommodating foreign workers on her remote property. It is believed that Ms. Markey operated the ute that was struck. She was traveling in a vehicle that also contained three female and one male passenger, all of whom were foreign employees in the farm sector, and who were thought to be between the ages of 23 and 30.
Police suspect Ms. Markey, the female driver who has since been identified, to be their boss. According to the Herald Sun, their relatives hurried to Australia last night. It is believed that they are from Hong Kong and Taiwan. The driver was “probably doing something she’d done so many times — driving people to work or back to where they live,” according to Assistant Commissioner Weir. And it’s all over, which is the frustrating aspect of it, that such a minor lack of attention can have such disastrous consequences.
It follows reports that the individual accused of causing the tragedy may have had cannabis in his system at the time of the terrifying collision. On Labuan Road, 29-year-old Christopher Dillon Joannidis was stopped for speeding in his white Mercedes Benz and given a fine. According to records presented before Shepparton Magistrates Court on Friday, he reportedly gave a positive reading for cannabis during a preliminary test. Mr. Joannidis received an infraction notice for driving 118 km/h in a 100 km/h zone while carrying a 20-year-old female passenger.
He was allowed to depart at 2.18 p.m. after a follow-up test came back negative, according to the Herald Sun. We’ll send the sample for more analysis. To find out if Mr. Joannidis had narcotics in his system, police will also analyze the blood sample they took from him at the hospital. Three minutes after being stopped, Mr. Joannidis allegedly ran a giveaway sign, colliding with a Nissan Navara ute carrying five passengers who were all murdered instantaneously. The Navara also lost a dog.
