Kia Sorento: A husband is in deep mourning after finding out his wife and daughter were tragically killed in a suspected drunk driving accident

A husband is in deep mourning after finding out his wife and daughter were tragically killed in a suspected drunk driving accident.

According to ABC 7, a man driving a Jeep Cherokee, who police say had been drinking beer, was going between 80-100 mph when he slammed into the back of a Kia Sorento that was stopped at a red light. This set off a chain reaction that involved eight vehicles. The crash was so powerful, it left the Kia and another vehicle mangled into what appeared to be a single piece of wreckage that burst into flames in front of a gas station on the corner.

A 33-year-old woman and her 8-year-old daughter were trapped inside the Kia Sorento while it was engulfed in flames. They unfortunately died at the scene along with the driver of the Jeep, who was the cause of the accident.

What makes the situation even sadder is the husband and father of the victims went to the police station searching for his family after they didn’t return home. The police had to break the news to him that his family were the victims of the car accident.

"It was a tough situation last night," said police Capt. Anthony Vega on Tuesday. "We had our chaplain there when we delivered the information. The way he put it was, everything he loved and lived for was in that car."

Investigators say they found beer cans in the Jeep, so they are considering both alcohol and speed as factors in the crash. Before the crash, the Cherokee sideswiped a Chevrolet Silverado before driving further down the road and hitting the Kia Sorento. The driver of the Silverado watched the car speed down the street and did not see any brake lights before it slammed into the Kia, police say.
