DuHadaway, who works as a full-time firefighter in Howard County, Maryland, and volunteers with the Christiana Fire Company in New Castle County, Delaware, was driving to the beach for the weekend with his family. He opened the auto door and jumped out, said the report. "The impact caused both vehicles to be displaced off the edge of the roadway and into a ditch", Jaffe added. The truck went into oncoming traffic and hit a auto.

As it entered lanes of oncoming traffic, it clipped a white sedan and turned sideways, perpendicular to northbound traffic.

The pickup truck, though, continued driving in the wrong direction and collided with a mini van. "And they were really great students and they had wonderful opportunities and I can't believe this happened to them".

"I felt kind of helpless, to be honest", DuHadaway told the News Journal.

Friends of the family, as well as the girls' classmates and the community gathered on Saturday to hold a v‌ig‌il to m‌ou‌r‌n.

"They didn't get to grow up and experience life as an adult".

A GoFundMe for the family's funeral arrangements has already more than $180,000. God needs more angels.
