A 36-year-old Indian man, Amit Kumar Bonsrey, died after an accident on a highway in South Australia.
Bonsrey worked in a factory in Adelaide and was delivering goods to Mildura, in Victoria, on April 30 when the fatal incident occurred, SBS Australia reported on Tuesday.
Bonsrey was accompanied by his father Jagmal Singh Bonsrey when their truck collided with an approaching truck on Sturt Highway, Wigley Flat, in South Australia.
Bonsrey died after the collision while his father was critically injured and is undergoing treatment at a hospital.
“His father accompanied him on the drive. He had been injured and underwent a 16-hour surgery. He remains in critical condition,” said family friend Surender Chahal.
Friends and family have stepped forward to help the family. They have initiated a fundraising campaign on Facebook to support the family, which is now left with no source of income.
“As a community here, our role starts now. I request the community to stand by late Amit Kumar’s family and provide help,” said Chahal.
Amit Kumar Bonsrey is survived by his wife Jasvinder Kaur, a 15-year-old daughter and one-year-old son.
According to the SBS Australia report, the family recently moved to Adelaide for Kumar’s job.
