Kerry and Noel Capes Wiki – Kerry and Noel Capes Biography

Kerry and Noel Capes were confirmed dead when their Subaru Forrester was hit by the truck at the Wenkes Road intersection in Chiltern, southwest of Albury, near the New South Wales border, on Thursday morning. Trevor and Lorraine Breen, from Wagga Wagga, in the same car as the Capes, also died in the crash. Trevor Breen and Kerry Capes were brothers. All the occupants were over 70 years old. The two couples had stopped for a break and a coffee during a road trip to visit friends and family in Melbourne when the tragedy unfolded. Police believe the retirees’ car stopped in front of the road train without yielding. “[They] made a mistake,” said Glenn Weir, Victoria’s deputy highway policing commissioner. “The roads are unforgiving.” The 30-year-old truck driver, who was just an hour into a 12-hour shift, was cleared of any wrongdoing.

Town grieves couples killed in Hume Highway truck tragedy

“Shocked” residents of the Wagga Wagga retirement home, Settlers Village, where both couples lived, and the local community paid tribute on social media, calling the news “devastating”. “Our community is saddened,” said one resident. “The world is now missing out on some of the best,” another local woman added. “I remember Lorraine, she was a very friendly and compassionate person.” “It’s very sad that we all grew up together and have been friends for years,” said a woman from Lake Cargelligo. Another said the audience at a local lake show paid their respects with a minute of silence. One woman said it was “such terrible news” and that the Breen family was “much loved and respected by many.” “Very sad news, such beautiful people,” said another woman.

Deputy Commissioner Weird described the situation as “horrible” and said he highlighted that a lack of concentration on the road can have tragic results. “For some reason, they didn’t yield at the intersection and they were hit by a B-double and they all died immediately,” he said. The 30-year-old truck driver was just an hour into the 12-hour road trip when the accident occurred. “The poor truck driver is just doing his job, driving, and then he’s faced with something he has absolutely no control over,” Mr Weir said. “That will also live with him for the rest of his life.” The truck driver was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and was later given a mandatory test that confirmed he had no drugs or alcohol in his system. It is estimated that there are more than 10,000 B-double vehicles, weighing up to 68 tonnes, on Australia’s roads each day. A car with four people inside weighs no more than 2.4 tons.
