The cause of the crash is under investigation.

“They were our everything,” the siblings’ father Rey Cruz told KTLA.

“They were the reason we wake up in the morning, for our kids. They’ll still be the driving force in our lives going forward,”

Rey said this Saturday morning as a large crowd gathered at the crash site to pay their respects.

Meanwhile, a fundraiser was started to raise money to help Reymundo and Alma Cruz, parents of the duo, to cover their funeral expenses.

Klarysa Cruz organized the Gofundme, writing: “With a heavy heart, we have started a funeral fundraiser to help cover the cost of Elias and Sarah Cruz funeral expenses. Our family was not prepared for the high cost of a funeral, and during this difficult time, we are reaching out to the community for help.

“Elias (17) and Sarah (14) unexpectedly took their final breath together in a traumatic car crash. Elias and Sarah both lived a life surrounded by love, both so full of life and with so much life to live.

“We want to give them the memorial they deserve and say our last goodbyes to rest in peace,”

The Sarah and Elias Cruz Gofundme, with a goal of $30,000, had raised $6,445 as at the time of filing this report.
