Katie Evans, 37, from Santa Clarita, was driving when she was struck head-on by a vehicle that had lost control after sideswiping another auto, reported the Santa Clarita Valley Signal. "It was pretty mangled". "Jacob called us during the night and said, "I'm really anxious my wife never made it home from the hospital last night, '" Caralee said. Is that you have dozens of medical professionals who have spent years training, and they've spent months actually working to save two lives that we thought would be lost, and then we have a life we thought we'd have that was lost just because of two bad decisions: one to go out drinking and the other - worse one - to drive afterward, and obviously it breaks my heart and it's broken six little hearts", Jacob Evans told ABC 7.

"We had people here when I told the kids that their mom was gone", Evans recalled, his voice choked with emotion.

Sister-in-law Caralee explained that Katie's husband grew concerned when she did not return home.

She adds: "It wasn't an uncommon time for her to come home from the hospital. He expected her to be home shortly after midnight". She was pronounced dead at the scene.

A spokesperson from the Santa Clarita Sherrid's Station said that the 21-year-old who caused the accident went across the median into oncoming traffic and hit Katie's vehicle head-on.

'We have a rough road ahead of us, trying to figure out how to handle everything, ' Jacob's brother, Michael, told PEOPLE.

Things had been looking up for the Evans family.

Caralee says Evans visited her little ones almost every day, and a photo showed the proud mom smiling wide as she held the tiny girls.

Reiterated Evans' sister in law, 'She might have been 25 weeks when she delivered. "Every day was like a miracle at the beginning ... it was a super high-risk pregnancy".

Katie leaves behind her husband Jacob Evans, her children Spencer (12), Travis (11), Nathaniel (9), Gideon (2) and her premie twin girls Hannah and Sarah (not even 8 weeks old!).

The family started a You Caring page, accepting donations to help Jacob Evans - now a single father raising six kids - care for the family. the initial donation goal was $100,000, but after an outpouring of support, the family has already received over $222,000.
