A 6-year-old boy has been left orphaned after both of his parents tragically died when their motorbike crashed with a Toyota Aurion.
Paul Pearce, 39, and Lynette Reader, 35, left behind their 6-year-old son Jaxxon after the incident in Tapping, Perth.
According to reports, the driver of the Toyota suffered a minor eye injury.
Jaxxon’s uncle, Todd, took to social media and confirmed the heartbreaking news, saying his sister Lynette was ‘a joy that was taken away.’
“The pain I feel is hard to put into words,” Todd wrote. “Wish you stayed in Tasmania, wish this was just a bad dream. You leave behind your beautiful son, I promise to be there for him. This is one pain I never wanted to feel, you were meant to grow old and cranky with me.
“A sister is someone who loves you from the heart, no matter how much you argue you cannot be drawn apart. She was a joy that was taken away. I’m just lost this day, I’ll always think about you.”
Bystanders described horrific scenes of ‘chaos’ when the incident happened.
“It was horrific, it was chaos. It’s not something I’d like to see again,” he said. “You could hear the bike coming. Then it was just silence pretty much straight after.”
Police are still investigating the incident.
