My heart is with the families of the family who lost their lives in a car crash last night.
The couple, both in their 70s, died at the scene of the collision in Melbourne’s west.
A coroner said the collision occurred at about 8.30pm on Saturday.
Mr Farrow said the couple, whose name has not been released, were “very much in need of the care that they would have received if they were in the right place at the right time”.
He said the family were “devastated” by the crash and were in “extreme grief”.
“We have no idea why they were killed,” he said.
“It is the first time that I have ever heard of a family being killed in a crash.
This is just the latest tragic accident in the country.
It is so shocking.”
Mr Darrick said the driver of the car involved in the crash was the man’s partner.
He described the man as a very fit, well-respected and good man.
When asked what he would say to the family of the deceased, he said: “I hope the people that have the courage to speak out and speak about this matter, that they will have a voice.
That’s the way we are going to deal with this.”
A Victorian Police spokeswoman said a collision investigation team was looking into the cause of the crash.
“The investigation is ongoing and is ongoing,” she said.
“Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the collision to contact them or Crime Stoppers.”
