2 Filipino Nurses killed in Australia car crash by katty : May 26, 2018, 09:40:15 AM
Two Filipina nurses were killed in a car crash in Australia on Friday, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said.

“Our thoughts and prayers go to the loved ones of two of our own who lost their lives in this tragedy,” Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano said in a statement.

According to a report from Philippine Ambassador to Australia Minda Cruz, the crash also injured the husband, three children and another relative of one of the fatalities.

The victims were on board a Dodge Journey that collided head on with a Toyota Land Cruiser driven by a 65-year-old man along a highway in Wallaroo, about an hour away from Canberra.

They were on their way to Melbourne to attend an event of religious group El Shaddai when the accident happened.

The DFA did not identify those who perished. Cruz described them as active members of the Filipino community in Canberra.

The ambassador visited the survivors in the hospital.

“We join the Filipino community in praying for the quick recovery of those injured,” Cayetano said.

He said the DFA was ready to extend any possible assistance that the victims' families may require.
