Girlfriend takes own life hours after partner killed by Domino's delivery driver
The "distraught" girlfriend of a man killed by a Domino's delivery driver has taken her own life, Mirror reported.
Alice Robinson "could not bear to live without her beloved Jase", her mum said.
She was found dead in non-suspicious circumstances in Mount Hawthorn, Perth, Australia, less than 24 hours after her boyfriend succumbed to his injuries.
The young couple had been together for eight years and moved from Shropshire, England, under a year ago.
Rugby player Jason Francis, 29, was believed to have been lying on the road by his house after a day of drinking with friends when he was hit at about 8pm on Saturday.
Alice was reportedly waiting for him to come home just metres away.

After seeing flashing lights from the emergency services vehicles, she rushed outside and police told her Jason had been run over.
Jason had reportedly been hit by an 18-year-old delivery driver in a white Volkswagen Jetta.
The teen reportedly stopped at the scene and called the emergency services.
Jason was taken to hospital but later died of his injuries with Alice at his side.
Friends then made repeated attempts to contact her and became worried when she failed to answer her phone.
Less than 24 hours later, she was found dead in a nearby suburb.

He was also a keen rugby union player for the Cottesloe Rugby Union Football Club, whose president shared an emotional tribute.
"Jase and Alice had only been at the club for a short time but had already ingrained themselves into the 3rd grade and 4th grade families," Sam Diamond wrote.
"They could both be found at the multitude of offseason BBQ's where Jase would always do his best impression of a competitive eater whilst Alice filled our hearts with her infectious laugh.
"These are two beautiful souls that we have lost far too early, and were loved like family."
