When the mother of a Teaneck family recovers a hospital after a fatal accident claiming the lives of her four daughters and her husband, they are trying to support the sad friends and family in North Jersey to support the woman who has lost her entire family.
The Trinidad family was heading back from Virginia on Friday afternoon when one of the daughters wrote his cousin, Kim Trinidad, who lives with the Teaneck family. They were stuck in traffic and would be a bit late, said Kim Trinidad to NJ Advance Media.
About four hours later, a Ford truck crossed the grassy center median on Route 1 in Delaware, sidekridde a car and collided with the Trinidad family minivan.
Master Cpl. Melissa Jaffe, a spokesman with the Delaware State Police, said Saturday afternoon the investigation was ongoing and what caused the truck to turn into future traffic was still unknown. The four daughters, who did not wear safety belts, were all pronounced dead on site together with the father.
Friends and family interviewed by NJ Advance Media identified father as 61
Jaffe said the police would not let the names to Sunday.
The mourning family in North Jersey plans to drive to Delaware on Saturday afternoon and visit modern Mary Rose, who has several fractures including her ribs and knees. They must also meet coroner.
