(CHARISMA NEWS) – A pastor and his three sons died in a car wreck over the weekend as they drove home from the father's Bible college graduation, according to multiple reports.
Israel Avelar and sons Kevin, Daniel and Matthew died in the crash while the pastor's wife, Hilda, and daughter Kimberly are listed as in critical condition. Israel Avelar's mother, Lazara Abaraca, was also injured in the crash but is expected to recover.
"When I got on scene what I initially saw was quite a mess of an accident; probably the worst I've ever seen, several fatalities and several people injured and a lot of the vehicles that were involved you couldn't even really make out what kind of vehicles they were before the accident happened," Blake Holland, a reporter told WKYT.
