FOX NEWS - Seven members of a Washington state family, including five children, died Monday morning after their car was involved in a head-on collision in eastern Oregon while en route to Las Vegas.
Police have yet to identify the victims of the crash. But family member Jessie Tate told Seattle's Q13 FOX on Tuesday evening that his sister Erika Boquet, 29, of Tacoma, and her three children, ages 6 to 11, and another relative and that family's two children were all in a 2016 Toyota 4Runner that was involved in the crash.
That vehicle was struck by a 1999 Toyota 4Runner, which authorities said swerved into opposing traffic on the two-lane highway, according to the Oregonian. The driver of the 1999 Toyota also died in the accident, bringing the total number of fatalities to eight.
"It's a tragedy I wouldn't wish on anyone else," Tate told the Oregonian of Portland, Ore.
