A 12- year - old boy has been charged with manslaughter over the death of Abbey Forrest (pictured), 11, who died when she was thrown from a ute tray in WA 's Kimerley Just weeks before her death, Abbey was named junior person of the year at the East Kimberley Aboriginal Achievement Awards in August.

By the end of 2019, there were 417 mass shootings in the U.S., according to data from the nonprofit Gun Violence Archive (GVA), which tracks every mass shooting Three people in the store were killed and three others wounded, including two police officers. The two attackers also died in the shootout.

The 19-year-old male driver was taken to RPH with serious injuries.

Another person was taken to RPH by helicopter after a crash in the south-west town of Allanson, near Collie.

'Devastating' start to weekend

WA Police Minister Michelle Roberts described the crashes as "absolutely devastating".

"Only on Thursday, I was standing there ahead of the long weekend asking people to drive courteously on the roads, to take care, to be aware of the weather conditions which make it more hazardous on the roads," she said.

"To now find that we've got three people deceased in the last 24 hours, and others seriously injured, is just tragic.

"My heart goes out to those families, particularly to the families of those two 27-year-old women in Cooloongup, the news for them must just be absolutely devastating and heartbreaking."

Mrs Roberts said it was concerning that in two of the other crashes, it appeared a car hit a tree.

"Again, it's a reminder that on country roads — and Darlington has that country road feel, too — you have to be really careful.

"The most common fatality in those circumstances is a car veering off the road into incoming traffic, or a tree."

Mrs Roberts said it was especially important to drive safely over the long weekend, given the easing of intrastate border restrictions which allowed people to travel further.

"I understand people are excited to be back out on the roads, and some of them will be travelling quite long distances," she said.

"Take care on the roads, show some courtesy, slow down, have breaks in your trip."

Long weekend exodus halted

Amid the tragic start to the WA Day long weekend, many road users seeking to leave the city were delayed by construction works in the CBD.

The southbound lane of the Mitchell Freeway was blocked off at 10:00pm on Friday, due to works on the Hay Street bridge.

The freeway lane may be shut until 2:00pm on Monday, according to Main Roads.

The bridge, which has been subject to a number of disruptive hits by trucks, is being raised from a 4.6-metre clearance to a 4.85-metre clearance.

Main Roads WA acting metro executive director Peter Sewell told ABC Radio Perth that many people travelling away from the city had left on Friday to avoid traffic.

"Yesterday afternoon, from lunchtime, around 70,000 vehicles headed to the south and around 40,000 headed to the north," he said.

"I think the grey nomads squealed their tyres on their driveways trying to get out of the city, there were a lot of vans heading north, they've all been waiting with baited breath."

Mr Sewell said it was hoped the works could be completed ahead of schedule, possibly by Sunday night, to minimise disruptions on Monday as holidaymakers returned to Perth.
