Adelaide Father’s Crash Death: A Heartbreaking Twist to His Fateful Journey

Tragedy struck an Adelaide Hills family this week when a 41-year-old motorcyclist, Brad Hill, was killed in a crash on his way to visit his injured partner.

Hill was riding north on North East Road in Inglewood on Tuesday afternoon when he failed to negotiate a bend and lost control. His motorcycle collided with an oncoming Holden Astra being driven by a 30-year-old woman. Attempts were made to revive Hill at the scene using a defibrillator, but he died from his injuries. The Holden driver and her passenger were unhurt.

Hill was on his way to see his partner, Daniiel Wilkey, who is recovering from critical injuries sustained in a serious head-on collision last month in Williamstown. Wilkey is currently undergoing rehabilitation.

According to Wilkey’s sister, Kandiice Dickson, the couple shared an emotional “I love you” over the phone the night of Hill’s accident. Dickson said Hill had “saved” her sister after her crash and that they couldn’t go on without her. She broke down describing how Hill kept Wilkey in their lives.

This second tragic crash, just a month apart, is devastating for the family. Police are investigating whether speed was a factor in Hill’s accident.

Hill’s death marks the 81st road fatality this year in South Australia, a significant increase from the 54 lives lost at the same time last year. The community mourns the heartbreaking loss of this caring partner and father.
