Family Killed In Car Crash On Way To Disneyland

HESPERIA (AP) — Authorities say a family of five who died when a van landed on top of their sedan in Southern California was headed to Disneyland to celebrate a young girl’s birthday.

Coroner division spokeswoman Sandy Fatland said Tuesday that relatives of the victims told her the family was making the drive from Hesperia, a desert town east of Los Angeles, to celebrate Cindy Jimenez’s upcoming fourth birthday.

Fatland says the victims were 25-year-old Angelica Garcia; her boyfriend, 30-year-old Gerardo Jimenez; their children, 2-year-old Ivan Jimenez and 3-year-old Cindy; and Garcia’s 9-year-old son, Freddy Garcia.

Authorities say the sedan was parked at a stop sign early Sunday when a van hit and landed on top of it.

The driver of the van had minor injuries. Sheriff’s officials have not released the driver’s name.
