1010 WINS-Just before the weekend, the life of a California mother of six was abruptly ended while on her way home from visiting her newborn twins - eight weeks old Hannah and Sarah - in the hospital.
At the time of the fatal crash, Evans was about a mile from her home, returning from a visit with her premature twins in the hospital, according to Natalie Mortensen who set a fundraising page for the Evans family online.
Her husband, Jacob Evans, explained that their twin girls were not expected to survive but are now almost 8-weeks-old and thriving.
Katie Evans, who had four older children in addition to the twin girls, was struck head-on by a vehicle that had lost control after it sideswiped another auto, Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station Sgt. Dan Dantice told the paper. A driver, suspected to have been under the influence of alcohol, reportedly crossed the median, crashing head-on into Evans' vehicle and killing her.

"There's still so much good in this world, and we are seeing that firsthand and I think that is the thing that's sustaining me right now", Evans said. "She was a devoted mother, sister and wife and will be immensely missed", according to the page.
In her effort to raise money for the family, Mortensen writes: "Jacob is left to care for six kids by himself".
A YouCaring page to benefit the family has now raised over $165,000.
Evans leaves behind her husband, Jacob, four sons - Spencer, 12, Travis, 11, Nathaniel, 9 and 2-year-old Gideon - and her twin baby girls, the page states, noting that the girls were 'not even 8 weeks old'. If you would like to donate towards childcare and other expenses.
