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.
