Eight Haitian church members died in vehicle crash in Florida

Here is a picture of the van that killed eight Haitian church members in crash in Florida in march, 2015

On the early morning of March 30, 2015, a Florida church van full of parishioners crashed after the driver apparently missed a stop sign at an unlit T-intersection surrounded by farmland on a very steep embankment, sending the vehicle across four lanes and plunging through tall grasses into a shallow canal. The crash killed the male driver and seven passengers-- four male and three female, eighteen people were in the 15-seat-capacity van when it crashed about 12:30 a.m.. Ten other passengers were taken to the hospital for treatment of whom one is a 4- year old child. People traveling in the van came from Fort Pierce, who were returning to the Independent Haitian Assembly of God after celebrating Palm Sunday trip in a Fort Myers church and were preparing for the upcoming Easter holiday after a recent fast. The police is investing the exact cause of the accident.
