Two Coldplay fans who had travelled to WA to see the band perform have been severely injured in a car crash that killed two people. Tayla Turczak, 24, and her fiancé Brendan Sammut, 25, were had flown to Perth from Sydney for the British superstars’ concert. But the couple are lucky to be alive and will now be forced to miss the concert after the horrific head-on collision on Sunday in Kunjin — just outside the Wheatbelt town of Corrigin. The crash happened just before 3.30pm on Sunday, when the high school sweethearts’ campervan collided with a Toyota Corolla on Brookton Corrigin Road. Tragically, the couple inside the Corolla — the 74-year-old man driving and a 72-year-old female passenger — died at the scene. The young couple were flown to Royal Perth Hospital for treatment of their injuries. Ms Turczak suffered a fractured spine, broken ribs, a punctured lung, a fractured ankle, two broken wrists and bruising to her liver, and will have to undergo surgery to repair internal bleeding. Meanwhile, Mr Summat will have to learn to walk again after shattering both his legs, undergoing major surgery to put pins and rods in his legs. It will take months of rehabilitation before he can walk again. Heartbreakingly, the pair will also be stuck recovering in WA hospital beds over Christmas and into the New Year. Tayla’s cousins — Jazmyn and Lynda Turczak — have created a fundraiser for the couple and their families after their lives were “turned upside down”. It has so far raised more than $10,900. “It’s day by day. It’s all we can do. They’re lucky to be alive,” Ms Turczak said. “The injuries Tayla and Brendan sustained are going to require months in hospital as well as ongoing rehabilitation. “They’ve had multiple surgeries and Brendan will have to learn to walk again.” Following the accident, both of their fathers flew over to be by their side. But a lack of accommodation due to the high demand brought on by Coldplay’s visit meant the pair could not find anywhere to stay. They have had to sleep on the chairs beside their injured children in their hospital rooms. “They can’t afford to stay there, they don’t have the money to stay there,” Ms Turczak said. “We are hoping to be able to raise enough money to take the stress off the parents so they can concentrate on being with their kids on their road to recovery. “The money raised will cover accommodation and meals for as long as they need to be there, until Tayla and Brendan are well enough to be flown home by air ambulance.” Lynda Turczak said Tayla had been looking forward to seeing Coldplay for years. She said although her cousin was in excruciating pain in a hospital bed, she still spoke of how she wanted to attend for “just one song”.
