Always going to hurt

In a car vs truck those in the car are always going to hurt:

A mother and her young son were killed yesterday when their car was crushed in a collision with a logging truck.

Rachel Lee Wallace, 37, and Lockie, 3, died after Ms Wallace’s car and a truck collided west of Huntly.

She was on her way from the Pukemiro home she shared with partner Michael Chubb and their 2-year-old daughter, Molly, to take Lockie to kindergarten in Huntly.

In a cruel twist, the couple had already lost a daughter, Jade, to cancer about six years ago.

Police investigating the 8.25am crash on Rotowaro Rd said it appeared Ms Wallace, who used to work at Countdown Huntly, lost control of the car as she rounded a bend and smashed into the truck.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
