A man has been charged over the death of mother-of-five, Tammara Macrokanis, whose body was found on the side of the Pacific Motorway on the Gold Coast on the weekend.
Police were called to an exit of the motorway about 9:30pm Saturday over reports a car was dangerously parked on the shoulder of the road.
The driver of the damaged car, a 31-year-old male, was taken to hospital.
Tammara Macrokanis’s body was found a few kilometres away between the Pimpama and Coomera exits.
The 32-year-old, from Casino in northern NSW, was visiting family on the Gold Coast.
Queensland Police have charged a 31-year-old man from Upper Coomera with a string of offences, including dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death whilst adversely affected, driving disqualified and driving an uninsured and unregistered vehicle.
He will appear in the Southport Magistrates Court this morning.
Ms Macrokanis’s family and friends are raising money for her funeral and children.
“She now leaves behind five beautiful children and a family who love and miss her dearly,” they said on a GoFundMe page.
“We are completely shattered and still seeking answers around the circumstances of her death.
“We were all so proud of her.”
