A New Jersey woman is the sole survivor of a horrific DE vehicle crash, which took the lives of her husband and four children on Friday, according to KTLA sister station WPIX in NY.

The wrong-way driver has been identified as 44-year-old Alvin Hubbard Jr. of Maryland. Melissa Jaffe of the Delaware State Police.

The driver of the Mercury Sable as been identified as 24-year old Brian C. Kern of Bethlehem PA.

Ballocanag's husband, Audie Trinidad, 61 and their daughters - Kaitlyn, 20, Danna, 17, and 13-year-old twins Allison and Melissa - were killed as the the family's minivan was hit by a truck as they were driving home from vacation on a DE state highway.

Only the mother, 53-year-old Mary Rose, survived the crash.

The family had been heading north on Delaware's Route 1 back to their Bergen County home. Hubbard was treated and released with non-life threatening injuries. She said authorities had not determined whether he may have experienced a medical emergency.

Trinidad's brother, Daniel, told the New York Post his sister-in-law remains in the hospital with multiple fractures and knows "her entire family has been wiped out".

A GoFundMe account has been set up for anyone interested in supporting the family.

Many were moved to tears as they remembered the family, including Audie, 61, and his four daughters.

The Trinidads of Teaneck were as tight as a family could be. "Melissa was in the honor society at school and just had a bright future ahead of her". There were prayers, songs and candles that spelled out the Trinidad name. "But it was nice knowing they were loved and accepted by their community, by so many people". To be that mother though, it would be unreal to have that happen. "She'd just go, "Hey, this is the answer I'll explain to you".

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.

Audie Trinidad was driving with Ballocanag in the passenger seat, and the couple's children were in the rear of the vehicle.

Cable barriers will be installed along 23 miles of State Route 1 in DE, the same road where police say a father and his four daughters were killed Friday in a crash involving a vehicle that crossed over the grassy median between both directions of the roadway.

Audie was a postal carrier and his wife works as a nurse, the family said.
