Bundalong family tragedy
A Bundalong mother and her 12-year-old son have tragically died following a horrific crash on the Murray Valley Highway near Brimin last Friday evening.
It is understood an eastbound truck on the Murray Valley Highway collided with a westbound car just after 9.30pm.
Amanda Kilmister, 37 and her 12-year-old son died at the scene.
The remaining occupants of the car, 44-year-old Paul Kilmister, their two-year-old boy and eight-month-old boy were reported as remaining in a Melbourne hospital.
The latest report is that Mr Kilmister remains in a stable but critical condition in hos- pital. The condition of the two-year-old and eight-month-old boys has been downgraded to serious but stable.
The oldest son, who was at a sleepover at a friend’s house, is now with family members in Melbourne.
SES Yarrawonga Unit’s acting Controller Clinton Nunn described the scene as “extremely tragic”.
“It was a terrible start to the holiday long weekend.”
Yarrawonga Ambulance and VRA Corowa
attended the scene, and there was a strong police presence.
“We were at the scene for about two and a half hours,” Mr Nunn said.
The Kilmister family moved to Bundalong several years ago and the older boys attend Cathedral College in Wangaratta.
The 31-year-old truck driver from Mooroopna has been interviewed and released pending further enquiries.
Major Collision investigation unit detectives continue to investigate the double fatality.
