Clean-up of tragic Kumbia crash site begins

FOLLOWING last month's tragedy at Kumbia that killed Charmaine Harris McLeod and her four children, Aaleyn, 6, Matilda, 5, Wyatt, 4 and Zaidok, 2, the South Burnett Council will be undertaking works to cover burnt grass and consolidate memorials.

After consultation with the affected family, Queensland Police and the Department of Transport, it has been decided the site of the crash has resulted in a significant visual impact that has caused distress, particularly to schoolchildren in the area who travel the road daily.

Queensland Police have received approval from the family to undertake the clean-up of the site which will include hydro mulching burned areas and consolidating temporary memorials.

Works are scheduled to start Thursday, June 27 and temporary memorials will remain on site until July 19.

A memorial cross will be later be established if the family wishes.
