The white Volvo was engulfed in flames shortly after the collision, according to ABC affiliate KABC. Four people died in the accident. A fifth person was transported to a hospital with minor injuries, KABC reported. Sergeant Kenneth Phillips said another CHP sergeant attempted to rescue victims from the burning vehicle but was “unsuccessful” in putting out some of the flames with a fire extinguisher, according to the outlet. Among the victims are Gedion and Ruth Mbatha, who are leaving behind children ages 3, 7 and 12, according to a GoFundMe campaign for the family.
Horelia Kuria, Gedion’s sister, told KABC that her husband and wife had been celebrating Gedion’s birthday with friends before the accident. He was a dedicated father, he was committed to his family and he was a loving brother and loving friend to everyone who knew him,” she told the outlet. The same goes for Ruth. Ruth went to nursing school here, she was a registered nurse,” she added. “She was engaged to her children.” Kuria is now caring for the children of Gideon and Ruth, according to Karla Gibson, the organizer of the GoFundMe campaign.
“Many of her family members reside in Kenya,” Gibson wrote, “and those here will be tasked with caring and ensuring that these children can continue to live their lives with as little disruption as possible.”
Donations to the GoFundMe campaign will go toward Gideon and Ruth’s funeral expenses, as well as the care of their children. These children will need all the support they can get in the days, months, and years ahead,” Gibson wrote.
