*One of the most devastating car accidents that has ever happened occurred Sunday. The car crash is the second to happen in nearly this very same location. Another crash happened in 2006, along this stretch of highway.

One family has been destroyed over the loss of seven family members that died in a horrific accident where the family van bounced off the median and careened off a three-lane highway into and through a barrier, falling 60 feet into an uninhabited area of the Bronx Zoo.

The family members in the van include grandparents Jacob Nunez, 85, and Ana Julia Martinez, 81, both from the Dominican Republic, their daughters, Maria Gonzalez, 45, and Maria Nunez, 39, and three grandchildren Jocelyn Gonzalez, 10, the daughter of the driver, Niely Rosario, 7, and Marly Rosario, 3, both daughters of Nunez.
