Amaya and Heidy were pronounced dead at the scene. Amaya’s other daughter, 2-year-old Kaylee Orellana Cruz, suffered a cut to her head and was taken to hospital, the television station reported.
It was the first time Heidy, a kindergartner, had gone trick-or-treating, the Sun-Sentinel reported.
“The 2-year-old is good, thanks to God,” Kaylee’s mother, Maria Orellana Cruz, told the newspaper. “She got a little hit on the head, but she’s OK.”
Amaya was a landscaper originally from El Salvador, the Sun-Sentinel reported. His widow said she does not know what to do.
“I’m left here along with my kids,” Cruz, who also has a 15-year-old son, told the newspaper. “I don’t know how I’ll be able to send two bodies back to El Salvador. I don’t want to leave them here (because) he has all his family in El Salvador.”
A GoFundMe page was created to help Cruz pay for funeral expenses. More than $13,500 had been raised in 20 hours, according to the site.
