Dad to triplets, footy coach identified as crash victim
A north Brisbane football club is mourning the loss of a much-loved coach after his tragic death Friday afternoon.
Owin Scriven, a 34-year-old Kallangur father of three died following a head-on collision on Beachmere Rd, Beachmere, just after 4.30pm.
Police said the man was travelling east along the road in a Nissan when he collided with a 4WD heading in the opposite direction.
Mr Scriven was a popular player and coach at Caboolture Rugby Union Club, which paid tribute to him Saturday.
"It is with a heavy heart we share the news of the passing of Owin Scriven," the club said.
"Owin was a player and coached for the club and more importantly brought his family back to follow in his footsteps.
"Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time. Rest In Peace."
An outpouring of grief has been shown in the wake of Mr Scriven's death, with mourners also sending touching thoughts to his young triplet daughters.
"Terribly sad news. May God wrap his arms around you and the entire family and give you peace," said Grant Dwyer.

"Top bloke, top father may you rest easy mate. Drinks are on us tonight mate," said Divaan Ireland.
"You will be sadly missed Owin.
"You were a pleasure to coach as a young fellow. A loss to all. Thinking of your family," said Kevin Kaeser.
