On their way back to New Jersey, however, tragedy struck on a DE highway, as a horrific auto crash took the lives of five of the six Trinidad family members - including all four daughters.

Her husband, 61-year-old Audie Trinidad, and their daughters - Kaitlyn, 20, Danna, 17, and Allison and Melissa, who were 13-year-old twins - all died when a Ford F-350 truck crossed a median on State Route 1 Highway in DE and struck their minivan, according to WPIX. The children were identified as 20-year-old Kaitlyn, 17-year-old Danna and 13-year-olds Melissa and Allison. Hubbard was treated and released with non-life threatening injuries.

According to an initial investigation, the incident took place on Friday "at approximately 3:47 p.m.", and involved three cars: a 2007 Ford F-350 - which was traveling southbound - a 2002 Mercury Sable, and a 1998 Toyota Sienna, which were both traveling northbound.

His passenger, a 30-year-old male from Hurlock, MD, was properly restrained and was also transported to a local area hospital where he was treated and released with non-life threatening injuries.
