Fathers have to be held back as kids, wives burn in fiery crash
Two mothers, four children killed when big rig rear ends minivan on the 5 Freeway
A rear-end collision involving a minivan on the southbound 5 Freeway in Gorman killed four children, two women and seriously injured two men early Tuesday after the van rolled down an embankment and burst into flames, authorities said.
The victims were two mothers and their children, said California Highway Patrol Officer Monica Posada. They were inside in the van, which was on the shoulder but partially blocking the No. 4 lane, when it was rear-ended by a big rig just before 3:30 a.m., she said.
The fathers for each family were seriously injured and airlifted to the hospital, she said. It was not immediately known whether they also were inside the van when it was hit.
After the collision, the van rolled down a short embankment and caught fire.
"When we arrived on scene, we saw the van starting to catch fire. We saw the husbands came running up to us, told us their families were in the vehicle still," CHP Officer Dan Williams told KABC. "My partner went and tried to get in through the van door. The flames came at him, he had to back out. I grabbed the fire extinguisher… but we were unable to assist in getting anyone out of the van."
The women and children were trapped inside and died, officials said.
“I can’t even describe it. You pull up and see the victims inside — it’s heartbreaking,” said Capt. Keith Mora of the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
The van was stopped after a prior, minor collision with a sedan, Posada said.
An investigation into the crash was ongoing.Two mothers, four children killed on highway 5 Freeway
Hi, We've talked to both Wendy and Li's brother, this needs to include both families in the gofundme. Since this is a tragedy that happened to both families, this gofundme needs to include both families. This would legitimize this gofundme and unite the resources together. This gofundme is getting all the attention from the media, and Li's went to the back burner. you need to get this thing together, since families will need to work together in order to make this work.
Is this gofundme for both families? The information in the description is conflicting: This account has been set up to assist my friend family-- the Aaron Ng Family in this time of his great loss. These 2 sweet family lost 2 mothers and 4 children to a tragic death in a car accident. If this is for both families, will the donations be split equally?
Sorry, hit the post button accidentally. Why does the one family need 300k for funeral expenses? And why does the fund goal ever changing? At first it was 500k then 100k and now 300k. This continues to make me doubtful that this is legitimate. Furthermore, I believe this should include both families who suffered from this tragedy.
It is suspicious that the amount keep changing? Didn't this account start off by asking for half a million dollars, now it's over a quarter of a million dollars? If this is for one family, why do you need over a quarter of a million dollars? Funeral costs do not cost a quarter of a million dollars.
This family is a wonderful family, having known the mother who was a great teacher to my younger brother and lived her life positively. This is not a scam and this is money is going to both families in total 6 people were killed and to pay for the care of the two fathers who are still in the hospital, who can't obviously work , but still have bills. These families were good people and this accident is affecting my own community, so please just wish them the best.
For people that are questioning this gofund me page, Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital whet the fathers are have an account set up to help with all costs and funeral bills. They are also if the employees donate the Hospital will match that. If there's any questions you can call the hospital directly 661-253-5000.
Angela Kim, I don't think they have the fund pages because most of us think this fund is for both family. I know the name of All of the Li's family. But I don't know should I give out here since I have not able talk to the family yet. All I can said now is her name stare with "C", and last name is Wu.
I'm so sorry for their loss but why it was Flora Siu created this account yesterday and it changed to Fanny Kuang today? So who actually has the account? If this donation is for both families, you should change the account's name to have both families' name on it not just Ng's.
Something isn't right with this account. It's concerning that the creator doesn't have a profile pic. It's worded very poorly and doesn't make sense... why aren't both families listed? Why such a high goal? This has red flags all over as a fraud/scam playing off of such a tragedy. To all those donating, I fear you're being taken advantage of.
