A Filipino-American father and his four daughters were killed in a road accident in Delaware, USA on Friday while his wife survived.

The Filipino American Society of Teaneck in New Jersey is mourning the deaths of Audie Trinidad, 61; Kaitlyn, 20; Danna, 17; and twins Allison and Melissa, 14.

A family friend, Linda Douglas, also started a GoFundMe page to raise money for the recovery of the wife, Mary Rose.

The family was returning to New Jersey aboard a minivan along State Route 1 Highway in Townsend when a southbound pickup truck crossed the median and struck a car in the northbound lane before colliding with the Trinidads’ vehicle, according to Delaware State Police.

The man and his wife were wearing seatbelts in the front seat, but the four girls were not, the police said.

The drivers of the pickup and the first car it hit survived.
