New Jersey Mom Who Survived Car Crash That Killed Husband and Daughters Learns Family’s Fate

The brother of the New Jersey man who was killed along with his four daughters in a multi-car crash on Friday says that “they were the most special family” and were beloved by everyone who knew them.

The sole survivor of the crash, mother Mary Rose Trinidad, is recovering in the hospital and is in stable condition.

Audie Trinidad, 61, and their daughters — Kaitlyn, 20, Danna, 17, and 13-year-old twins Allison and Melissa —were killed on a Delaware highway in their minivan when a pickup truck going the opposite direction crossed over the median and slammed into their vehicle, ABC News 7 reported.

Audie’s brother, Daniel Trinidad, tells PEOPLE that he saw Mary Rose on Monday morning before she went into another surgery for her right shoulder.

“She wasn’t on medicine then so she wasn’t groggy and was able to cry,” says Daniel, 59. “She said it was finally sinking in that they’re gone forever. She said, ‘Now I’m by myself’ and I said, ‘You’re not alone. We’re here.’ It’s going to be painful for her, emotionally and physically. We will give her a lot of love.”

It took this tragedy, says Daniel, for him to realize how much the family’s community valued his brother and nieces.

“I live in Miami and when I came here everyone on the street said Audie was the sweetest and nicest neighbor,” he says, 59. “This is his legacy. He was full of love and compassion. Classmates came over to pay their respects and were just sobbing. They said that the girls could never say no to someone who needed help. They didn’t know the definition of no.”

He added: “It’s so heartwarming. My brother was so well loved.”

Just hours before the crash, Audie sent his brother pictures of the crabs they were eating for lunch before heading back home to Teaneck, New Jersey.

“That was the last time we texted,” says Daniel, who visited the family once a year. “But we spoke on Father’s Day.”

The family is waiting for Mary Rose to heal so that she can be present for the viewing and funerals.

“We’re in no rush,” says Daniel. “It won’t be that soon.”

According to an initial investigation, the incident took place on Friday “at approximately 3:47 p.m.,” and involved three cars: a 2007 Ford F-350 — which was traveling southbound — a 2002 Mercury Sable, and a 1998 Toyota Sienna, which were both traveling northbound. The family of six was driving in the 1998 Toyota Sienna.

“For unknown reasons, the F-350 failed to remain in the southbound lanes of travel and exited the roadway, crossing over the grassy median and into the northbound lanes of travel,” read a statement shared on the Delaware State Police website by public information officer Melissa Jaffe.

“The front driver’s side of the F-350 struck the left rear side of the Sable, causing the Sable to spin out of control and come to a rest in an embankment. The F-350 continued out of control southbound in the northbound lanes, when the front of the Sienna struck the passengers side of the F-350. The impact caused both vehicles to be displaced off the edge of the roadway and into a ditch,” Jaffe added.

While Audie and his 53-year-old wife were properly restrained at the time of the crash, their four daughters were not, said Jaffe. Audie and his daughters were pronounced dead at the scene. His wife was transported to a local area hospital where she was admitted with serious injuries.

WATCH: Family Learns Sacramento Shelter is Full, Drives 16 Hours to Adopt a Dog

Maybe you’ve heard this before, but it’s worth repeating: For every pet you adopt from a shelter, you’re saving two lives — the life of the animal you’ve adopted, and another who fills its space at the animal shelter.

One Canadian family went out of their way to save two lives at Sacramento’s Front Street Animal Shelter, which announced on Facebook on May 31 that it was “extremely crowded” and had run out of space for animals.

“Joyce had been at the shelter for almost two months, sadly watching people pass her by for other dogs,” says the caption for this Facebook video, which has been viewed over 76,000 times and shared over 2,000. “But when this family heard we were full, they drove all the way from British Columbia, Canada, to save a life.”

The lucky pooch they chose was Joyce, who the shelter describes as a “perfect fit for them.” Watch as the pup meets her forever family, receives belly rubs, and finally waves goodbye to shelter life as she drives off into the sunset in a car, on her way home.

“This was her past,” says the video, “but her future looks amazing!”

If you’re searching for a forever friend, visit the Front Street Animal Shelter, where adoptions are free throughout the month of June to help as many pets as possible.

So, what did we learn from these disasters? Well, Twitter tried to learn the PR game with #SpinUrEmbarrassingMoments. Here are some of the very best tweets.

Iowa’s Görtz Haus Learns That Refusing To Host Gay Weddings Is Bad For Business

The Christian owners of an Iowa wedding venue that turned away a gay couple in 2013 are shuttering their business.

Located in Grimes, Iowa, the Görtz Haus has been operating as an art gallery, bistro and wedding venue for 13 years, but has struggled financially in the two years since owners Betty and Richard Odgaard cited their Mennonite faith when they declined to host Lee Stafford and Jared Ellers’s wedding, USA Today and other outlets are reporting.

Stafford and Ellers quickly filed a discrimination complaint through the Iowa Civil Rights Commission, and although the Odgaards agreed to a $ 5,000 settlement, two heterosexual couples canceled their planned nuptials at the venue after the case hit the news. Although the deposits were non-refundable, both couples received their money back.

“We knew that the business was going to be in trouble almost immediately,” Richard Odgaard told The Daily Signal. “We had to get rid of the wedding business to avoid another complaint and possibly a higher penalty.”

“I would never discriminate in any area that’s not who I am. I just couldn’t celebrate their wedding because of my faith,” Betty Odgaard told KCCI.

In January, it was announced that the Görtz Haus would stop offering wedding services altogether, but the financial loss has been significant. Now the Odgaards say the business, which previously hosted between 15 to 25 weddings a year, will close, possibly as early as August.

Joking that they “didn’t get the Chick-fil-A response” from locals, the Odgaards say they think things might have turned out differently if their situation had been left to a popular vote or even an area judge.

“I think if people in Iowa would have had a chance to vote on this, it would have never have been this way. People in Iowa are pretty conservative,” Betty told The Daily Signal. Added Richard: “This was all administrative judgement. The [gay couple] had a platform to file their case and we didn’t get our day in court with a jury of our peers.”

Still, as The Des Moines Register points out, the Odgaards have received a fair amount of support. During a recent campaign stop in Iowa, Republican presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz argued that the Odgaards were victims of “liberal fascism,” noting, “The modern Democratic Party has decided their devotion to mandatory gay marriage in all 50 states is so unforgiving that there is no longer room for defending religious liberty.”

Echoing those sentiments was Eric Baxter, senior counsel at the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty that represented the couple and aims “to protect the free expression of all faiths.”

“It’s shocking that the state prefers forcing Betty and Richard Odgaard to close the Görtz Haus Gallery, rather than allowing them make a living without violating their religious beliefs,” he told the Register in a statement.
