"It's never easy. Something like this is definitely hard," said detective Sgt. James McGuinness. "We all have children families. This is a terrible thing to have to go through right now."

A makeshift memorial of balloons and stuffed animals mark the site of the crash.

Trinca's 4-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son are at Stony Brook University Medical Center. The driver and passenger of the van weren't seriously injured.
