Five members of Teaneck family killed in auto crash

Four children and an adult, all from a New Jersey family, were killed in a wrong-way three-vehicle crash that closed Route 1 near Townsend for hours this afternoon, the Delaware State Police said.

The initial investigation determined that on Friday a 3:47 p.m., a 2007 Ford F-350 work truck on a pickup frame was traveling southbound, in the left lane Route 1 in the vicinity of Noxontown Road, troopers reported.

The fa‌t‌a‌l collision took the l‌iv‌es of the family's father, 61-year-old Filipino-American father Audie Trinidad, and his four daughters: 20-year-old Kaitlyn, 17-year-old Danna, and 14-year-old twins Melissa and Allison. Trinidad's 53-year-old wife was hospitalized with serious injuries.

The driver of the pickup, a 44-year-old Maryland, was treated and released from the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The truck first clipped the rear driver's side of a 2002 Mercury Sable driven by Brian Kern, a 24-year-old from Bethlehem, Pa., before crunching directly into the Trinidad family's 1998 Toyota Sienna, officials said.

"It's certainly heartbreaking", said Delaware State Police Master Corp.

Hundreds of mourners have lighted candles and left flowers at the Votee Park in Teaneck, New Jersey to show their support for the family.

A family friend, Linda Douglas, who set up a GoFundMe for the family, told NJ.com that Audie Trinidad was "always the dad to pick everyone up in the minivan ..."
