Plea for answers
Jolene Moore is trying to focus on supporting husband Jacob as he fights to survive head and chest injuries and stay strong for their two children after the Mandurah fly-in, fly-out worker was critically injured in a hit-and-run crash in Karratha.
Ahead of this newspaper’s print deadline she urged anyone who knew who hit her husband as he walked on a street near his Pilbara accommodation about 2.25am on Saturday, June 2 to come forward.
“My husband, he’s had his body shattered,” Mrs Moore said.
“My children have had their lives turned upside down. I’ve had my life turned upside down.”
Mrs Moore said it had been horrific to think of her beloved husband lying on the road alone after he was hurt and it “meant the world” to know residents had helped him in those critical moments.
At the time of print Royal Perth Hospital State trauma director Sudhakar Rao said it was not yet clear how Mr Moore would recover from severe injuries to his brain, ribs and lungs.
Police believe Mr Moore could have been struck by an AU model Ford and the vehicle may be damaged. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit crimestopperswa. com.au
