A 28-year-old woman killed in a car crash in the State’s South West on Sunday night had lost her brother in a freak road accident 15 years earlier. Jacqueline Waa, who grew up in Busselton and worked at a Repco store in Bunbury, was driving a Toyota Hilux on South Western Highway near Boyanup when her ute left the road and struck a tree. In a heartbreaking twist, her elder brother Kori Waa was run over and killed in an accident on Vasse Highway in 2006. The 20-year-old had stopped to go to the toilet when the driver of the vehicle he was in jokingly drove off. Mr Waa laid down waiting for his friends to return and was fatally struck by another car. Shocked friends have remembered Ms Waa, right, as a “beautiful angel”, as tributes flooded in on social media after her fatal accident. Close friend Georja Kemp, who worked with Ms Waa at the Repco store, said the pair had built an “extraordinary” connection in a short time. “She probably had the biggest impact of anyone I’ve ever met in such a short period of time,” she said. “Whether that was out of work or at work, if I needed anything, she was a call away and she was that person that I’d go to. “She definitely became one of my closest friends in such a short period of time. “I was able to rely on her and her friendship, I have never experienced that sort of connection with any other person in my whole entire life. No matter what she had going on, she always put you first.” A number of Ms Waa’s friends posted tributes on social media, remembering a woman who “brought such a joy to this life and to everyone in it”.
