Woman’s tragic last words on ‘fast cars’ to mum before dying in inferno crash

A woman who died in a high-speed car crash made a tragic admission to her mum just a week earlier.

The horror inferno erupted on Friday (January 13) near Helidon, outside Toowoomba in Queensland, Australia with Jemmah taken to hospital where she died from her injuries.

Jemmah's distraught mother admitted to the Gatton, Lockyer and Brisbane Valley Star that her daughter had a "wild side" but would never steal a car.

In a touching tribute, Mrs Cole said: “Not a day went past where she didn’t think of other people … even if you stabbed her in the back and did wrong by her … she would still go and help you.”

Chillingly the bereaved mum revealed how her daughter expressed a passion for going fast in cars just days before her fateful crash.

Mrs Cole said: “She even told me last week, ‘I love the thrill of being in the cars cause people go fast in them … but I would never steal anything from anybody’.

She added: “She was changing her life and then it all ended so tragically.

“She was a beautiful girl, and even as a little girl, she was always my wild child. She was loud, she was boisterous and all she wanted to do was have fun.”
