Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

An elderly Maltese couple that have been married for 50 years died in a horrific traffic accident on Saturday in Sydney Australia.

This was reported by a number of Australian news outlets on Sunday. 81-year-old Carmen Sant was certified dead on site. Her husband 83-year-old Frank was rushed to hospital fighting for his life. He unfortunately lost the battle on Sunday. The couple originally hail from Mosta.

The couple’s car was involved in a crash with another car driven by a 22-year-old, at an intersection 5 minutes away from their home.

The young man is meanwhile being charges with a number of offences and will also probably be arraigned for causing the death of the couple.
