Alcohol suspected in crash that killed Saugus mother of six
Oct 11 2017 by Francis Osborne
Besides the eight-week-old twin girls, Evans and her husband had four other children, boys aged 12, 11, eight and two.
Caralee says Evans visited her little ones almost every day, and a photo showed the proud mom smiling wide as she held the tiny girls. "She was a devoted mother, sister and wife and will be immensely missed", a family member wrote on a YouCaring fundraising page. Katie was driving home after visiting Sarah and Hannah in the hospital, a thing she has been doing every day since they were born, when her auto was hit dead-on and she died.
"I guess he had been up all night", Caralee Evans told People. "I knew she was on her way home when she wasn't home when I thought she should be home I got anxious", said Jacob Evans, the victim's husband.
"Katie couldn't go a day without visiting her brand-new twin girls in the hospital", the fundraising page says.
The YouCaring page was created by his sister, Natalie Mortensen, who hasn't left her brother's side since the fatal crash. She was charged with a misdemeanor DUI pending future investigation.
"I've written numerous times on how various health care and educational laws will affect my family, and generally focus on my oldest son, who's autistic", Evans wrote in a June 25 Facebook post. An October 9 update posted on the page said the twins have gained weight and will soon head home from the hospital.
The crowdfunding campaign reached its initial goal of $100,000 pretty quickly, so organizers set a new goal of $500,000 to be able to receive incoming donations. The twins are expected to go home in four to six weeks, KTLA reports.
Gunmen kill two in attack on Kenya university students
Somali militant Islamist group al Shabaab frequently carries out attacks along the Kenya-Somali border and along the Kenyan coast. According to the initial details provided by the police and witnesses, two people, staff members of the university were killed.
Evans said that Hannah and Sarah nearly died right before birth, but that they're getting stronger each day, thanks to their mother.
In her note of encouragement she said: 'We are living proof that God redeems, restores, and puts lives back together, although I'm sure you cannot imagine right now that could ever be so.
According to Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station Sgt Dan Dantice, police found alcohol containers in the vehicle that hit Evans.
"If the tests show alcohol, she will be facing vehicular manslaughter charges", Miller said. At that time, police said once it is established whether the female driver was under the influence, she will be taken into custody.
Authorities have not released the woman's name.
The driver of the third vehicle did not require an ambulance.
