The three 13-year-olds were killed on Oct. 31 after being struck by a vehicle while walking in a Santa Ana crosswalk.

The suspected driver, identified by police as 31-year-old Jaquinn Bell, was arrested and charged with multiple counts, including charges of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence and hit-and-run causing permanent injury or death, among others. His arraignment was postponed to Dec. 16.

Meanwhile, friends of the victims told KCAL9’s Juan Fernandez they endured a difficult week at school.

“There was a lot of tears. A lot of people breaking down into tears,” said Alexi Casias, the victims’ friend.
