How can one family find so much tragedy
The following story was archived from the 13 June 2008 Wangaratta Chronicle
A 19 year old Glenrowanwoman was killed, and two male teenagers injured when their vehicle left the road on a sweeping right-hand bend and hit trees in the King Valley last night.
Jessica Campbell died at the scene, while Dylan Bergamin – the 18 year old son of missing Wangaratta woman Kath Bergamin – and a 17 year old male from Wangaratta, were both injured.
The exact circumstances of the crash are still being investigated by members of the Major Collision Investigation Unit, who arrived at the scene from Melbourne late last night.
However, police have said they believe Ms Campbell was a front seat passenger.
Detective Senior Sergeant Lindsay Cummins of Wangaratta police this morning said it appears the late model Holden Commodore left the Upper King River Road, about 3.5km south west of Cheshunt, travelling towards Lake William Hovell, between 6.30pm and 6.45pm.
Air Ambulance was called to the scene but couldn’t land due to low cloud cover, forcing the teenagers to be conveyed via road to Wangaratta District Base Hospital.
A spokesman for Rural Ambulance Victoria said both teenagers had lost consciousness for a period of time.
The spokesman said both teenagers were admitted to hospital with one having a head injury and the other suffering from possible spinal injury, with neck and pelvic pain, and lower limb injury.
Anyone who witnessed the collision or who has any information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
How can one family find so much tragedy. First there was the disappearance of Kath Bergamin followed by the arrest of her husband John on suspicion of murder. Then came the court case of the elder son Steven for threatening to blow up a winery … and now a fatal accident involving the youngest son Dillon who would have been around 13 at the time of the disappearance of his mother.
There has to be a higher reason to all of this.
