Sonya Davis

A five-year-old Australian girl and her Thai grandmother were tragically killed in a motorcycle accident in Northern Thailand.

Sonya Davis from Australia was visiting her grandparents at their north Thailand farm for the school holidays with her parents and her six-year-old brother, and was scheduled to fly home the same day she was hit by a car.

Sonya and her grandmother were riding a motorcycle to the local market on January 18. When they tried to turn right, they were hit by a car from behind, throwing them both off of the bike and into the road.

Her grandmother died immediately and Sonya was critically injured and rushed to the hospital where she was placed on life support before she died on Friday, five days later.

A MyCause page created to help raise money for the funeral costs of Sonya and her grandmother and to bring Sonya home has already raised more than $15,000 AUS.
