A woman whose younger brother was killed in a tragic car accident has lost her partner just four weeks later in similar circumstances.
Taylor Daniel’s partner Beau Roberts was in a devastating motorbike accident in Bundaberg, central Queensland, on November 2nd.
Four days later, his family made the excruciating decision to turn off his life support and say their goodbyes after his condition failed to improve.
Just four weeks earlier on October 5, Ms Daniel’s younger brother Brock was a passenger in a car with his pregnant girlfriend, brother, and brother’s girlfriend when the car rolled about 10.30pm in Toowoomba. He died at the scene.
The 16-year-old, who had five siblings including a twin, was due to become a father to twins himself.
His girlfriend and unborn babies were not hurt in the collision.

After the devastating crash, Ms Daniel shared a GoFundMe which had been set up to help cover the costs of his funeral.
On Sunday, she found herself making an almost identical post.
‘It absolutely breaks my heart that I’m here doing this again,’ Ms Daniel said.
‘Just four weeks ago my brother had a car accident and didn’t make it. I came to you begging for help and you did so much.’
Ms Daniel revealed her partner had ‘lost his fight in the ICU (intensive care unit) on Friday after a motorbike accident’.
‘I’m absolutely broken and feel like I’ll never make it through this,’ she said after the ordeal.
‘Never in my life did I think I could love one person so much. You showed me what true love is and I’ll never forget anything you’ve done for me.’

A GoFundMe page has since been set up for Mr Roberts and hopes to raise $10,000 to cover the costs of a funeral.
‘We want to give this beautiful person the rock star send off he deserves,’ the fundraising page reads.
Mr Roberts was involved in a car accident on Monday, November 2nd, while he was riding a motorbike and was immediately put on life support.
His family were told he ‘wasn’t strong enough to take his own breaths’, and by Tuesday medics confirmed he’d suffered severe and irreversible brain injuries in the accident.
The nature of the injuries was so severe that doctors warned his family they were ‘not compatible with life’, but they held out hope for three more days that he would miraculously pull through.
‘We held on to hope that he was going to come out of this as he was the strongest person to walk this earth,’ Debbie Russell, who organised the fundraiser, said.
Ms Daniel is now preparing for her second funeral in four weeks, after describing Brock’s funeral as ‘the hardest thing’ she’d ever been through

Ms Daniel is now preparing for her second funeral in four weeks, after describing Brock’s funeral as ‘the hardest thing’ she’d ever been through.
The 16-year-old died when the car he was travelling in came off the road and rolled several times, police said.
Brock’s pregnant girlfriend and the 18-year-old driver were both taken to Dalby Hospital in a stable condition with neck, back and abdominal injuries.
The 19-year-old was assessed by paramedics but declined transport to hospital.
Brock’s uncle, Dallas Bamberry, described the teenage, from Bundaberg in Central Queensland, as an ‘innocent passenger in a car accident’.
‘A beautiful 16-year-old boy, a son, a sibling of six, a twin brother, and as life would have it, was soon to be a father to his own twins,’ he wrote.
‘He was adamant about becoming a dad, and he knew he was going to be a good one, we all did.’
He called Brock ‘a young man who was full of life, was young and free, always happy to help others.’
Brock (pictured) was in the car with three other teenagers, including the mother to his unborn children, who were not seriously injured
