The family was on their way up to Big Bear to go skiing. Although it was raining in Orange County, they knew that fresh snow would be waiting for them at Snow Summit ski resort. Unfortunately, they never made it.
While driving down the 91 Riverside freeway, the family van lost traction on the slick highway surface and skidded to a stop sideways on the freeway. Approaching vehicles slowed and made their way around the right and left side of the stopped van.
An approaching semi tractor trailer truck was driving too fast for the wet surfaced roads. Unable to stop in time, it struck the van seriously injuring the 3 young children and instantly killing their wonderful mother and loving father, who was a retired police officer.
