Driver fails to contact family after crash that killed mother and son

THE woman charged over a horrific crash which killed a mother and son in Sydney’s south earlier this year has made no effort to reach out to the grieving family.

Athena Vibert, 50, was not required to appear before Picton Local Court today and was represented by her solicitor, as the victim’s family continue to wait for answers about what caused the tragic crash which killed a mother and her son in March.

Julie Bullock and her son Hudson, 7, were killed near Pheasants Nest on the Hume Highway in a head-on crash as they were making their way to Wollondilly Anglican College where he was a student when the silver Holden Astra Vibert was allegedly driving crossed onto the wrong-side of the motorway.

Vibert allegedly veered across the median strip on the Hume Motorway and collided head-on with them.

Vibert was also severely injured and had to be taken to Liverpool Hospital were she remained for a number of days following the crash.

Husband Darren Bullock came to Picton Local Court today supported by family and hopeful of finding what happened on that tragic day but was forced to leave without any further light being shone on what happened the day he lost his wife and a son.

Speaking outside court he told the waiting media Vibert had made no effort to reach out to the family since the crash.

“I have never seen her (Vibert), still haven’t seen her, even today,” Mr Bullock said.

“It has taken its toll and like I say we have had no sympathy off the family that we think caused the accident.

“We still do not know what actually happened, we haven’t been told anything. All we know is that she came onto the wrong side of the road and we know Julie wasn’t at fault and that’s it.

“It is a bit frustrating (the court delays). It is not going to bring them back is it? It is just closure more than anything. We just want to know what happened for their sake.”

Vibert is facing two charges of driving in a dangerous manner occasioning death and other charges.

She is yet to enter a plea to the charges and her case will return to court in November.
