Police seek witnesses to Gympie mum’s truck crash death
THE family of a 47-year-old Gympie mother killed in a crash on the Bruce Highway late last month have joined police to appeal for witnesses and motorists with dashcam footage of the tragic incident.
Police released more information on investigations into the crash after Karmen Ellemor was killed late on October 25.
Karmen was a teacher at James Nash State High School.
"Just before 7pm … Karmen Ellemor exited her car on the southbound side of the Bruce Highway near Mary Valley Link Road and was struck by a truck shortly afterwards," a police report said this morning.
"Investigations have identified vehicles that have passed Karmen's white Subaru XV hatchback parked in the southbound lanes around the time of the incident.
"While these drivers are not involved in the crash, investigators believe they may have crucial information that could assist with understanding the circumstances of the crash."
Senior Constable Tony Noble from Sunshine Coast Forensic Crash Unit said anyone who was in the area between 6.30 and 7.30pm should contact police.
"Officers are trying to gather a complete picture of the incident to complete our investigation, but most importantly, so Karmen's family can gain an understanding of how she died," Sen Const. Noble said.
