Fatal pub beer garden crash claims five lives



Five individuals lost their lives when a car crashed into a pub beer garden at Daylesford, west of Melbourne.

The horrifying accident occurred in the midst of what should have been a peaceful afternoon, turning it into a scene of chaos and devastation.

Eyewitnesses reported that the vehicle lost control, smashing through the pub’s outdoor seating area, where patrons were enjoying their drinks and conversations. The impact was so severe that several people were trapped under the wreckage, leading to a frantic rescue effort by emergency services.

The 66-year-old drive from Mt Macedon has been taken to Ballarat Hospital. It’s unknown whether he suffered a medical episode leading up to the crash.

Victoria Police Road Policing Command Superintendent John Fitzpatrick said the scene police arrived at was “very complex”.

“I haven’t seen anything this drastic in a long time,” Superintendent Fitzpatrick said.

Local authorities are currently investigating the cause of the accident.

The tragic incident has left the community in shock, with condolences pouring in for the victims’ families.

Among the dead are a young boy, believed to be aged around six, and a girl believed to be aged in her teens.

Witness Rhonda White told the Herald Sun: “There were bodies everywhere, it was horrifying”.

“I watched the whole crash,” Ms White, who was having a drink at the nearby RSL when the tragedy unfolded, said.

“The car went up into the sky. I thought it was just dust. It’s only now I know it was bodies.”

Ms White, who has lived in Daylesford for more than 40 years, said she’d never seen anything like it in her years of living in the quiet country town.

“I can’t explain what I saw, something I wouldn’t even see in a movie. The car going up, flicking lights and I only realised later, they were all bodies around us – they were bodies I was watching.”

“I can’t believe I saw what I saw. I don’t know where the people came from. Normally at that time the place is quiet on a Sunday evening but there were around 100 people who were helping out.

“There were nurses off duty and others doing CPR.”

Australian Infrastructure Minister Catherine King, whose electorate Ballarat includes Daylesford, said the community has been left “devastated”. 

“The car crashed into an area that has been set up really post-Covid with lots of tables and chairs, not just for the Royal Hotel, there’s an ice cream shop there as well, so there (would have been) a lot of families. And it was a really warm night, and we’ve got a long weekend… so it was pretty busy last night,” she told ABC Radio on Monday morning. 

“Five people have lost their lives, and their families’ lives have changed forever. 

“It will really have shocked a lot of people, and I think we’re really only just be coming to terms with what happened today. 

“These sort of terrible accidents, the sort of level of trauma goes on for a long period of time, and people will need a lot of support and care, and the police obviously will need to undertake a significant investigation into what’s happened.”

Russian women want their men back from Ukraine



In a heartfelt plea, Russian women have taken to the streets demanding the safe return of their loved ones from the Ukrainian front.

The conflict in Ukraine has stretched on for years, and the toll on families has been immense. Mothers, wives, sisters, and daughters are uniting to call for an end to the fighting and the return of their men.

The women, often referred to as the “mothers of the front,” are growing increasingly frustrated with the ongoing conflict. They argue that their husbands, sons, and brothers have been away for far too long, and the human cost of the war is simply too high.

With no clear resolution in sight, their calls for peace and reconciliation are becoming more urgent.

This grassroots movement has sparked a national conversation in Russia, with many questioning the government’s handling of the conflict.

While the official stance has been to support the separatist forces in Ukraine, these women are highlighting the personal tragedies and broken families left in the wake of the war. Their determination to bring their loved ones home is palpable.

The situation raises important questions about the impact of long-term conflicts on families, the role of women in peace movements, the government’s response to public sentiment, and the prospects for a peaceful resolution in the ongoing Ukraine conflict.

Is a long commute a reason to quit?



Workers reconsider roles due to lengthy travel times

A surge in resignations is hitting the job market as employees reevaluate the impact of long commutes on their work-life balance. The trend, intensified by the rise of remote work during the pandemic, sees a growing number of professionals opting to quit rather than endure extended travel times.

A recent survey conducted among commuters revealed that 68% of participants identified their daily journeys as a major source of stress. The findings suggest a paradigm shift in the traditional understanding of commuting as an inherent aspect of employment.

Employers are now grappling with the challenge of retaining talent as dissatisfaction with lengthy commutes becomes a catalyst for resignations. The implications extend beyond individual decisions, impacting productivity and overall workforce dynamics.

The phenomenon underscores the need for businesses to reassess their remote work policies and invest in solutions that alleviate the burden of commuting. As the job market adapts to evolving expectations, companies that fail to address the commute conundrum risk losing valuable contributors.
