1. Mother of four killed on night out with girls.
A mother of four from the Central Coast town of Terrigal in NSW has been killed after being hit by a car on a night out with friends, while her pregnant friend has been left injured.
Annabelle Deall, 32, was killed after being struck by a car in Terrigal on Saturday night. She was crossing a road as a sports car came around a bend and struck the group of women.
Ms Daell’s friend, Megan Darling, who is 20 weeks pregnant was also hit.
The 22-year-old driver stopped further up the road and returned to help.
According to Seven News he was screaming “I’ve just killed someone.”
Locals rushed to aid the women with wait staff from the nearby restaurant running straight to the scene.
“Obviously they witnessed the terrible scene,” owner of the Cowrie restaurant Brett Dengate told Seven News.
“Two ladies had been mowed down by a young driver and [the staff] can’t work today, they are too upset.”
The driver will face court later this month, charged with dangerous driving causing death.
