Little Skyler, four, woke up in hospital with a broken arm after horror crash that killed her mum and grandmother – and the question she’s been asking since coming to will break your heart
- A four-year-old has been asking for her deceased mum after she died in a crash
- Mother and daughter passed after accident in at Kinkuna, QLD, on Sunday night
- The young girl and her aunt have sustained serious injuries from the incident
Skyler Bishop hasn’t stopped asking ‘where’s mummy’ since waking up in hospital with a shattered arm and neck brace holding her head straight.
Her family are still struggling to get her to understand she will never see her mother or grandmother again after the pair were killed in a horror car crash.
The four-year-old girl and her auntie Kristina, 32, were the only survivors of a head-on collision on a remote road in Kinkuna, north of Brisbane, at 4.35pm on Sunday.
It’s understood their station wagon slammed into an overtaking Holden Commodore on the wrong side of the road.
Her grandmother Maryanne Bishop, 52, died at the scene, while her mother Jessyica, 32, passed away at about 9pm that night in hospital.
Now little Skyler, who was flown to a hospital in Brisbane, faces months of rehabilitation to treat serious injuries including a fractured arm that required surgery.

Maryanne Bishop (pictured) was described as ‘fun-loving’ and absolutely dedicated to her family
Young Skyler has sustained serious injuries to her arm and her family said she ‘has a long road to recovery and will remember this event for the rest of her life.’
Maryanne had five children and multiple grandkids, and was described by her grieving family as a ‘fun’ woman whose ‘love for her children was endless.’
‘There could be a room filled with silence and somehow Maryanne could just make everyone laugh,’ the family told Daily Mail Australia in a statement.
‘Whatever her kids were up too she was keen to join, whether it be 4×4 driving or snorkelling.’
Jessyica had three children aged four, 13 and 14 and was called free-spirited and bubbly.
‘Jessyica’s love for her three children and family was eternal,’ the family said.
‘Jessyica would always pick up the phone in a time of need to support you anyway she could even if it was just an ear to listen. [She] was bubbly and could light up a room with her smile or giddy laugh.’
25-year-old Kristina Bishop (pictured) survived the accident but was left with horrific injuries
The Bishop family said Kristina suffered multiple broken bones in her legs, her knee caps were ripped from the muscle, she has a fractured pelvis and multiple broken ribs.
‘Kristina’s road to recovery will be a long and a painful one,’ the family said.
‘[She] is lucky to have survived and we thank the lord that she is still here with us.’
The family has started a gofundme page to raise money for the funeral and Skyler and Kristina’s recovery period.
They said Skyler will require months of intensive physiotherapy to be able to use her arm again.
The Bishop family asked Daily Mail Australia to tell our readers to ‘hug your loved ones a little tighter tonight’, and wanted to thank the Bundaberg and Gold Coast communities for their support.
‘What we also do ask is that you hug your loved ones a little tighter tonight, tell them you love them, fix and mend what you can with your family cause you never know what the next day might bring, life is too short.’
