An 18-year-old woman, who was killed when the car she was a passenger in collided with a tree in South Australia, posted an ominous message to Facebook in the moments before she died.
Tammy Marchant, a mum-of-one, was on a roadtrip from Western Australia with Josh Graham, 26, Aaron Bishop, 20, and Jarrad James Famlonga, 24. The Nissan 4WD they were travelling in rolled on Augusta Highway in the early hours of Thursday morning, killing Merchant and her friend Graham who was driving at the time.
Just 15 minutes before the crash at 12.15am, Marchant wrote on Facebook what would come to be her last ever post on social media.
“This trip has definitely made me realise take all the chances and memories you have because you don’t when it could be your last,” her eerie words read.
“You spoke to soon girl [sic],” one friend later commented.
Those words were part of a bigger tribute to her pet dog Troy.
“I miss my boy Troy, so much why does the heaven always take the good ones so quick it’s been 4/5 months now with out you and to be honest I thought it would get easier! But you were the best thing I’ve had since I was 10! I’ll forever love you,” she wrote at the time.
On Thursday, 20-year-old Aaron Bishop, who was travelling the back seat Jarrad James Famlonga, gave a harrowing account of his hazy memory of the crash in a status on Facebook.
