The mother of a 16-year-old New Zealand girl who was killed when the SUV she was travelling in rolled on a highway arrived at the crash scene just in time to say “goodbye”.
Jayne Glover was alerted to the accident by a phone call from a family friend who happened to be at the scene, New Zealand Herald reports. Jayne arrived to be by her daughter Lara’s side shortly after emergency services attended the site of the accident.
“I was able to say goodbye,” Jayne Glover told the New Zealand Herald.
“I felt so blessed that someone had done that [called me] and very, very, very thankful.”
The 16-year-old was travelling with seven other teenagers – ranging in ages from 15 to 17 – in the car when it crashed on Sunday.
Three of Lara’s fellow passengers are still recovering in hospital.
Seventeen-year-old Jordan Bosch has been in an inducted coma since the crash, with his father confirming he has suffered a punctured lung, ruptured spleen and a lower spine fracture, stuff.co.nz reports.
Police are still investigating what led to the crash and have not yet laid any charges.
