Police have released the names of the father and two children killed in an horrific accident at Martins Road, Dyraaba, yesterday morning.
They were Shaun Zager, 28, son Kaleb, 6, and daughter Zara, 5.
Mr Zager and his children were sitting, apparently without seat belts, in a parked car by the side of the road, near the intersection with McDonalds Bridge Road, when the accident occurred at around 8.15am.
They were killed when another car apparently veered to the wrong side of the narrow country road and ploughed into their vehicle.
The force of the accident pushed both cars off the road into an adjacent paddock.
Due to the nature and timing of the crash, there has been media speculation that the family were waiting for the school bus to arrive when the accident occurred.
The 57-year-old man, four-year-old boy and three-year-old girl, occupants of the oncoming car, were taken to Lismore Base Hospital for treatment.
The driver submitted to routine toxicology tests and police are awaiting the results before deciding whether to press charges.
