Tributes flow for Namibia crash victims

THE mother of a young Australian woman who died in a crash in Namibia says her family was proud her daughter had "lived [life] to the full, and in a way that gave back to society".

Jarrah Young, 27, of Queensland, and Sarah Penberthy, 22, a Brisbane nurse originally from Inverell in NSW, died after their tour group's truck veered off a road and overturned in Namibia near the city of Usakos on Wednesday.

Ms Young's brother was also on the truck when it crashed. He was thrown 35 metres and had bad cuts to his leg and feet, ABC reported.

He is expected to arrive back in Australia today.

Ms Young's mother, Andrea Harris, told the ABC she wanted her daughter - a Gold Coast veterinarian - to be remembered as a "sunny, focused and driven girl".
