Darcey Kramme Lakes Entrance teen dies in car crash. Speed and alcohol blamed on an Australian woman’s death also claiming her two fellow male passengers.
The Victoria, Australian community of Lakes Entrance is trying to make sense of a car accident that led to the tragic death of 18 year woman, Darcey Kramme and two other men who’d been passengers in the car she’d been driving Tuesday night.
The 18 year old local of the small coastal town had been driving her car down a notorious ‘back road’ when she lost control and hit a tree, killing herself and her two passengers, Saturday early morning. Identified as crash victims reported the age were front-seat passenger Josh Lavery, 17, and Lake Tyers Beach man Brett Harvey, 36, who’d been sitting in the back.
At the time of the crash, Kramme, a probationary driver had been on her P plates. Speeds clocked at the time of the crash were in excess of 100km/h (62 miles per hour).
Kramme and her fellow passengers had been returning in the early morning hours of Saturday morning after having gone to a party when they crashed just on 2.15 am. Speed and drink would be attributed as factors in the crash reported 9news.com.au.
Offered Snr Sgt Bogle, ‘It’s a recipe for disaster,’
‘Kids think that they’re unstoppable but they’re not.’
Darcey Kramme had been scheduled to turn 19 two days before her car crash death:

‘Waking up this morning to find out that you’re gone is honestly heartbreaking. Heaven gained an angel with a beautiful smile and full of joy,’ said another.
