A horror head-on collision between two trucks and a car has tragically killed three teenage siblings as their father watched on.

Jack Pink, 19, and his sisters Marina, 17, and Destiny, 15, were killed instantly from the three-car crash on the Newell Highway near Boggabilla in northern NSW about 6am.

In a tragic twist, the father, Glenn, was reportedly heading home from a fair with his children when he faced the devastating scene of the crash.

The vehicles burst into a ball of flames on impact and the cabin was torn off a petrol tanker also involved in the fiery pile up.

The family worked on the travelling show circuit, Showmens Guild of Australasia vice-president Broderick Pavier told Sydney Morning Herald.[2]

It is understood they were travelling back to Brisbane after working at a fair show in Dubbo.

Police said Jack Pink was driving a pantech truck and towing a trailer, which crashed head-on with a fuel tanker then burst into flames, according to SMH.

The father of the three teenagers, Glenn, was seen collapsed on the road near the harrowing aftermath, according to Daily Telegraph.[3]

Images from the scene show the mangled wreckage of the truck strewn over the road by the blackened shell of a car.

Astonishingly, the fuel tanker driver survived with only lacerations to his face after he was thrown from the vehicle.

NSW Police have launched an investigation into how the crash unfolded.

A GoFundMe page launched for the Pink family, who are said to be ‘crushed’ by the tragedy.

‘What they do is everything for the kids.

To lose 1 would be crazy. [The fact they] lost 3 in 1 split second is just out of this world,’ the page said.

‘They are great people and their sacrificial love for their kids knows no bounds.

This is a crushing blow to this tight knit family.’

Marina was due to turn 18 on Tuesday, according to the page.

Police set up a crime scene at the crash site.
