STONY BROOK - The father of the two children who survived a deadly crash in Manorville last weekend revealed today that his 2-year-old son, Christopher, was released from the hospital.
Jason Trinca thanked his family, friends and the community, saying that their good wishes helped bring his family a miracle after the tragedy of losing his wife and son.
Trinca's 4-year-old daughter, Marialena, remains at Stony Brook University Medical Center, but her condition has been upgraded.
"She has a number of serious injuries and [it's] still too early to predict how long it will take to recover," says Margret Parker, of Stony Brook University Medical Center.
Police say Keri Trinca's car collided with a white van on County Road 111 just blocks from their home Saturday morning. Keri Trinca and her 7-year-old son, Jason, were killed.
Meanwhile, the Trincas say they have been receiving help from the community through a number of fundraisers to help Jason Trinca, who will now have to raise two children on his own.
Services for Trinca's wife and son will be held tomorrow and Sunday at Moloney Funeral Home in Lake Ronkonkoma. A funeral Mass for the victims will take place Monday in Center Moriches.
