A BUSSELTON family has been left to grieve the tragic loss of a beloved wife, mother and friend after a two car crash on Wednesday morning claimed the lives of two people.

Ambergate resident Rebecca Wall, 37, was travelling to work in Bunbury around 7.40am when her VW Golf Hatchback collided head on with a Chrysler PT cruiser hatchback.

Mrs Wall and the driver of the Chrysler, a 21-year-old man from Carey Park both died at the scene.

Busselton Jetty chief executive officer Lisa Shreeve took to social media on Sunday to remember “one who always gave to everyone else”.

“Rebecca dedicated her life to other people,” she wrote.

“She was currently working with foster children and families around the South West, was the Geographe Primary School P&C president and was a great manager for South West Coach Lines.”

Mrs Shreeve has set up a giving cloud in memory of her friend who had married less than two weeks before she was killed.

“Rebecca had just married her husband Craig on January 9, the same day her daughter Kristen turned eight,” Mrs Shreeve wrote.

“She will never see her wedding photos or know how many lives she touched.”

The giving cloud page has already raised more than $3800 to support Rebecca’s family.

Police are still investigating the accident which resulted in two of the 13 deaths recorded on WA roads in the first three weeks of 2016.

The figure follows on from the 161 people killed on the road in 2015, with 87 of those deaths on regional roads.

Last week the state government released its preliminary analysis of serious and fatal crash on WA roads in 2015 which sadly showed most were avoidable.

Road safety minister Liza Harvey said despite a falling amount of road fatalities, many families are still suffering trauma.

“The heartbreaking thing about these statistics is that they show most of the deaths were avoidable,” Mrs Harvey said.

The preliminary crash book revealed that of the 161 road deaths in 2015, speed was a factor in 62, alcohol was a factor in 39, fatigue was a factor in 16 and 31 were not wearing seatbelts.

“The road safety message is sinking in but we still have the same preventable factors appearing in our serious and fatal crashes,” Mrs Harvey said.

“That is why we, as a community, must always have road safety front and centre of our minds every time we get behind the wheel.”

Mrs Harvey said in this financial year, a record $111 million was allocated from the Road Trauma Trust Account for proven road safety projects, increased drug and alcohol testing, education campaigns and flashing school zone signs.
