Also in the vehicle were his four daughters, ages 20, 17, and two 13-year-olds, who were not properly restrained, were pronounced deceased at the scene. Mary Rose Ballocanag, 53, the girls' mother and Trinidad's wife, suffered serious injuries and was hospitalized.

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. Another auto was hit in the process.

The family was returning from a trip to Ocean City, Maryland Friday afternoon when a pickup truck crossed the median for unknown reasons, struck a auto and skidded into the path of their minivan.

It was learned that Trinidad and Ballocanag met in NY after coming to the United States in the 1980s. Ballocanag, on the other hand, is a nurse at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital in Manhattan.

"I was crying. I had no words to say", said Amber Dow, Danna Trinidad's friend.

An off-duty firefighter who witnessed the crash said the utility truck had crossed the median and struck another auto before the family's minivan plowed into its side.

Audie Trinidad's brother says in the blink of an eye, he lost everything. The pickup truck was hit by the Toyota Sienna minivan carrying the New Jersey family.

Both Trinidad and Ballocanag had been wearing seat belts; at least some of the daughters were not, police said. "The great times she was there for me".

He added, "Every summer, they went on field trips - Orlando, Six Flags", he continued. The driver of the pickup, 44-year-old Alvin S. Hubbard Jr. from East New Market, Maryland, was treated and released from the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. So far, no charges have been filed against him. He said the Trinidad family's minivan could not avoid T-boning the truck. "They go to church", he said said.

"They didn't get to grow up and experience life as an adult".

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with medical expenses for Mary Rose Trinidad and funeral arrangements for her family. God needs more angels. On Saturday, the girls' classmates, along with the Filipino American Society of Teaneck organized a vigil, because they are hurting, too - along with all of Teaneck.
