MANORVILLE - Two young children from Manorville are in critical but stable condition after a horrific car crash that killed their mother and older brother on Saturday.

Keri Trinca, 30, and her 7-year-old son, Jason, died when their car collided with a van on County Route 111 in Manorville.

Four-year-old Marialena and her 2-year-old brother, Christopher, were also in the car. They're at Stony Brook University Medical Center, where doctors say they're optimistic that they will recover.

The tragedy has many questioning the safety of the intersection where the accident happened at Route 111 and Oceanview Road.

"There's a blind spot over there, and people seem and try to rush through that yellow," says Kevin Keller, of Manorville.

No charges have been filed against the driver of the van, who suffered minor injuries. An investigation into the accident is ongoing.
