The 53-year-old woman underwent surgery for multiple injuries and was in serious condition in a DE hospital on Saturday night.
20-year-old Kaitlyn, 17-year-old Danna and 13-year-old twins Melissa and Allison; died when a pickup truck crossed a median on a DE highway Friday and struck the family's minivan head-on.
Audie Trinidad worked at a Bronx post office and his wife, Mary Rose, is a nurse at Beth Israel hospital in Manhattan, according to family.
She's been told her daughters and husband died in the crash but remains heavily sedated, he added.
He describes them as "a God-fearing family" and says simply, "They're all gone in the blink of an eye".
"I've been in business 28 years", DuHadaway said.
Hubbard Jr. plowed into their auto, killing Kaitlyn, 20, Danna, 17, twins Melissa and Allison, 13 and their father, 61-year-old Navy Veteran Audie. "I'm so blessed to be with the Teaneck Community and grieving with you for the Trinidad family", Teaneck Mayor Mohammed Hameeduddin said during a program for the Trinidads.
Family members said Trinidad grew up in the Philippines and had come to the United States in 1987. He catches the back left of my auto and misses my door. Suddenly, the vehicle "went 10 o'clock across the median", veering across the grassy strip that separates northbound and southbound lanes.
Authorities are not sure how the truck driver lost control and hit the familys minivan. It then crossed into the northbound lane, perpendicular to opposing traffic. The minivan carrying the Trinidad family broadsided the truck, flipping over the work vehicle on impact, the firefighter said.
'I was sitting in the ER and my heart was just pouring out to them when I heard about it.
"I felt kind of helpless, to be honest", DuHadaway told the News Journal.
Meanwhile, a GoFundMe page to support Mary Rose has been set up. "They're really great students and they had awesome opportunities, I can't believe this happened to them", said Stinger. It had raised $220,000 of its $250,000 goal on Tuesday morning.
Hundreds of mourners have lighted candles and left flowers at the Votee Park in Teaneck, New Jersey to show their support for the family. God needs more angels. "Why?" The girls' classmates organized the vigil, along with the Filipino American Society of Teaneck.
