Lone survivor of New Jersey family car crash speaks out: “A part of me died”
NEW JERSEY — Mary Rose Trinidad, the lone survivor of a fatal wrong-way car crash that killed her 4 daughters and husband, spoke publicly for the first time on Friday, seeking justice for her slain family.
“When Audie, Kaitlyn, Danna, Melissa and Allison died, part of me died.”
Trinidad lost her daughters as well as her husband Audie in the July 6 crash.
In an interview with CBS, an attorney representing Trinidad says they are suing 44-year-old Alvin Hubbard Jr., the driver of the pickup truck that killed members of the Trinidad family.
Hubbard survived the crash with only minor injuries, and was not criminally charged by authorities.
Trinidad’s attorney say the investigation will take a few months, and are hoping to have Hubbard criminally prosecuted.
“Now that they’re all gone, I have nothing to look forward to but justice for them.”
