Plea for an­swers

Pilbara News - - NEWS - Jor­dan Cutts and Gabrielle Knowles

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.
