Baldivis triple-fatal crash probe to take weeks as family and friends mourn loss

A police investigation into a car crash that killed three young men in Perth’s south could take weeks as more tributes continue to pour in from friends and family.

Father-of-two Kody Bell, 24, his younger brother William, 21, and 24-year-old father-of-two Jaziah Thomas, all died at the scene of the crash on Wednesday evening.

A fourth man, 21-year-old Tyler Roe, was left with serious injuries after the car the men were travelling in and a Kia Stinger collided on Sixty Eight Road in Baldivis.

The 44-year-old woman behind the wheel of the Kia and Roe are in a stable condition in hospital.

“Never thought I’d have to write this but RIP Will and Kody we had such good memories growing up and I’ll forever cherish them,” friend Harry Milward wrote.


“We use to spend everyday together from the moment you [Kody] finished work to when you were walking to bed, thank you for being my best mate for so many years. We had our ups and downs, but we always managed to get through them.”

Another friend of Kody’s wrote: “Kody Bell, always making everyone else his priority to cheer up, one of the best personalities I’ve ever been around mate, doesn’t feel that long ago that we were causing havoc in class.

“To Will, I only met you a handful of times but were a such a good friend to my brothers and always out with a smile and a yarn.”

Thomas’ partner Tamekah Locker also posted an emotional tribute on Facebook to the “love of my life”.

“It still doesn’t feel real and I keep waiting for you to just walk through the door and it breaks me apart to know you’re not going to,” she wrote.

“You have been my whole world, my best friend and my person since we were 14 and I don’t know how I can live without you, I just want you to come home.”

Major crash officer-in-charge Detective Senior Sergeant Adam Matson said police were looking into the cause of the crash, including the speed of the cars and the possibility some passengers were not wearing seatbelts, which could take weeks.

“There are a number of priorities that we’ve got to put in place, investigations that we have to look into,” he said.

He offered his “heartfelt sympathy” to family and friends and first responders on the scene.
