Mother survives car crash that killed her husband, 4 daughters

The crash continues to remain under investigation by the Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit.

Mary Rose Trinidad remains in a hospital in DE with fractures to her ribs and knees.

20-year-old Kaitlyn, 17-year-old Danna and 13-year-old twins Melissa and Allison; died when a pickup truck crossed a median on a DE highway Friday and struck the family's minivan head-on.

According to the po‌l‌i‌c‌e, the pickup truck, driven by 44-year-old Alvin Hubbard Jr. from East New Market, Maryland, crossed over the median and drove the wrong way before it eventually crashed into an oncoming vehicle, causing it to spin as it continued to travel the wrong way and h‌it‌ the family's minivan, ABC7 NY reported.

Audie Trinidad worked at a Bronx post office and his wife, Mary Rose, is a nurse at Beth Israel hospital in Manhattan, according to family.

April Kinsey, a resident of the nearby neighborhood, told the News Journal of Wilmington that she covered her mouth after she found out the severity of the auto wreck.

"They go to church every Sunday, they were loved by neighbors and classmates", said Daniel Trinidad. "I've been in the business for 28 years".

Officials say 61-year-old Audie Trinidad and his four daughters were killed in the horrific wreck Friday afternoon.

"She's still under a lot of pain medicine", Audie's brother, Danny Trinidad, of Miami, told NJ Advance Media on Sunday. Melissa Jaffe said police didn't immediately know the ages of the children or what part of New Jersey the family is from.

DuHadaway, who works as a full-time firefighter in Howard County, Maryland, and volunteers with the Christiana Fire Company in New Castle County, Delaware, was driving to the beach for the weekend with his family.

First, it swerved into the left shoulder, he said, touching the rumble strips before moving back into the middle of the lane. "The impact caused both vehicles to be displaced off the edge of the roadway and into a ditch", Jaffe added.

When the truck hit the grassy median, it went airborne, DuHadaway said. It then crossed into the northbound lane, perpendicular to opposing traffic.

"It just hurts. All I have is just the memories", he said. "I felt kind of helpless, to be honest".

Hundreds gathered Saturday at a vigil in Teaneck to grieve the loss of the Trinidads, WPIX reported.

Friends of the Trinidad family set up a GoFundMe page to help cover funeral costs and Mary Rose's medical bills. The page has so far garnered more than $125,000 in donations.
