Their car went off the road, rolled multiple times and ended up in a field where it caught fire. The CHP still looking into exactly what happened, but say the crash was devastating.

"I think anytime kids are involved it makes it that much more difficult. It's difficult in itself just responding to a scene where there is somebody who may or may not survive,' said CHP Officer Warren Clawson.

People who live in Amador County know the road where the Streit family crashed well.

They say it's very winding and trying to pass another driver is never a good idea.

"A little stressful especially when you have families and things of that nature put on the road," one man said.

A young mother, father and two little boys are now remembered for their smiles and tenacious love.
