Jan 26 2023 Update:
The suspect responsible for the deaths of Chris and Damian has been caught!
The Amaya and Pineda family want you all to know how much they appreciate all of your prayers, love and support.
Hello everyone, thank you for taking the time to read this.
On the early morning of January 9, 2023, my sister Debbie Amaya was driving with her three children when a speeding driver blew through a red light causing a catastrophic collision to Debbie’s vehicle.
Because of this drivers reckless actions, the collision he caused wound up killing Deborah’s two boys.
Inside the vehicle was Debbie (35) her son Chris (13) her daughter (16) and her youngest son Damian (2).
They were all transported to Harbor UCLA Medical. Debbie was admitted into the ICU and Debbie’s daughter, thank god was able to go home that same day with minor injuries.
Sadly, Chris and Damian passed away from their injuries.
Just as important is the devastation to the father, who is completely heart broken, and was at work during the accident.
This family is completely shattered, leaving the rest of the family (us) to help pick up the pieces.
This fund is to help them restart to a difficult new life without their two boys, Chris and baby Damian. Maybe to help improve life a bit by rebuilding, starting a new, bringing some joy into their lives as they now deal with the loss of their two boys.
We’re expecting huge costs in the recovery of Debbie, and her family in regards to rebuilding and reestablishing their families spiritual foundation and solidarity as they try to restore what’s left of what they have.
We as a family will of course pull funds together for Debbie and her family as best as we can, as this is our responsibility first, but it’d be a blessing to receive any additional help that’ll really make a difference.
Thank you, and take care.
