Five members of a family, including four children, were killed Friday in Delaware when a pickup truck crossed into oncoming traffic and smashed into their minivan.
The Teaneck family was traveling northbound in a white Toyota Sienna minivan on Route 1 in Towsend, Delaware when a southbound F-350 work truck crossed the center median and struck the van. Five of the occupants in the minivan were killed and pronounced dead at the scene.
Authorities have not released their names but said the victims were a 61-year-old father and his four daughters, ages 20, 17, and two 13-year-olds. The man’s 53-year-old wife survived the crash and was taken to the hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
The driver of the truck, a 44-year-old man, was hospitalized and released.
