Family, Friends Saying Goodbye To Mother, 7-Year-Old Son Killed In Manorville Crash

MANORVILLE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – On Saturday, family and friends begin saying goodbye to a mother and son who were killed in a car accident on Long Island.

Keri Trinca and her 7-year-old son Jason died in a car crash in Manorville last Saturday. The family's two smallest children, ages 2 and 4, were critically injured and are now being cared for by their dad, also named Jason.

On Friday, Jason Trinca held his 2-year-old son's Christopher's hand as he thanked first responders who helped save his two other children.

"Although Christopher's recovery is a miracle, we still need thoughts and prayers for my daughter," he said.

Christopher's 4-year-old sister Marialena was badly injured and is still in serious condition at Stony Brook Hospital.

Memorials and fundraisers over the past week have helped Jason Trinca raise money for medical bills. Hundreds of friends and family fought tears while remembering little Jason. Some even wore number 48, the boy's award-winning Go Kart number. It was his favorite pastime.

Visiting hours for Keri and Jason Trinca are Saturday and Sunday in Lake Ronkonkoma. A funeral mass will be held Monday in Center Moriches.
