Perth car crash at Mardella claims life of mum Tori Pearsall leaving three children behind
A woman who tragically died in an early morning car crash in Perth leaves behind three young children, all under the age of 10.
Tori Pearsall, died after her car veered off Kargotich Road in Mardella, 56km south of Perth at 3.30am last Saturday.
The 27-year-old’s Toyota Corolla hatchback crashed into a tree after it went off the road.
The car went up in flames while Mrs Pearsall was inside the vehicle. She died at the scene.
Mrs Pearsall leaves behind her three kids, all of whom are under 10 and her husband Ricky.
The couple were married for 14 years after they met in high school.
Mrs Pearsall’s sister Kirra Panaia told The West Australian Tori’s children meant the world to her.
‘To my dearest sister, I love you so much, and this doesn’t seem real still… You had my back when the world was against me,’ she said.
‘You have my word, I have got you and your kids…I will let your memory live on forever sis, I love you, and you make me so proud.’
Tori was moving to another home and was on the way to her sister’s place before she fell victim to the crash.
The mother of three owned a catering business.
It’s not clear how the car Ms Persall was driving left the road, after major crash investigators seized the vehicle.
By the time firefighters arrived, the car was engulfed in flames and it was too late to save the woman’s life.
A GoFundMe page was set up by Caitlin, a friend of Ms Pearsall, who described Tori as a ‘heavenly angel’.
‘I’m doing this Gofundme for the [family] so it makes it that little easier to be able to deal with things…big or small it all counts !!’ she said.
‘Let’s help make this just a little easier and help [support] her [family] just like we would if she were here!!!’
Almost $3,340 has been raised so far, after the page was set up on Sunday.
